Find cottages in FifeVisit Fife

As you might expect from the ancestral home of Scotland's monarchs, Fife has a rich heritage and some wonderful historic attractions, as well as a stunning coastline, quiet beautiful countryside and one of the highest concentrations of top class golf courses in Britain.

This small county is packed with a great diversity of landscapes, extending from the Firth of Forth in the south which includes Dunfermline (Scotland's former capital) and the famous Forth Road and Rail bridges, to St. Andrews and the rural north. All along extends its eastern coastline with pretty bays, dramatic cliffs, Blue Flag sandy beaches and old fishing villages.

St. Andrews is well known for its golf courses and is home to Royal and Ancient Golf Course. But in addition the town, which is Scotland's oldest university town, has a charming old-world feel and is close to an expansive beach. St Andrews cathedral may be a shadow of its former self, but well worth visiting. You can spend hours exploring the history and admiring the views here.

Exploring to the south of St. Andrews the coastline is dotted with small fishing villages, such as Crail, Anstruther, Pittenween, East Nuek and St. Monans. The Fife Coastal Path extends along this coastline and is perfect for bracing walks and magnificent sea views, where if you're lucky you might see Grey seals, dolphins and basking sharks. Boat trips are available from Anstruther to the Isle of May where many sea birds nest at certain times of the year.

Of note is Falkland Palace, which was a rather regal holiday home for many Stuart monarchs, including Mary, Queen of Scots. Beautifully maintained, you can explore the palace and gardens at your leisure – including Britain's oldest tennis court. Also of interest are Kellie Castle and Garden which dates back to the 14th century and contains fascinating interiors and lovely wooded gardens.

For those looking for an active holiday Fife has plenty of activities for all ages from great walking and biking trails to horse riding and clay pigeon shooting to first class water sports.

If you're ready to begin your exploration of the region take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Fife.
