& Fife Town Guide
Fife, in south east Scotland, is situated between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Tay. With a residential population of approximately 350,000 people, Fife is Scotland's third largest area for population. Most of the populous is split between Dunfermline, Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy.
The town of St Andrews is on Fife's east coast and is known as the "home of gold". The Links Course has been used for more golf Open Championships than any other course and it is the oldest of the four main championship courses. The golf course attracts many visitors each year from around the world.
St Andrews is also famous for it's castle. The picturesque run is located on a rocky peninsula in the Royal Burgh of St Andrews. Historically the castle was used to house the wealthy bishops when St Andrews was the religious centre of Scotland. Today, the castle's grounds are maintained by Historic Scotland.
Fife is famed for it's hilly and rugged landscape. Several extinct volcanic features litter the landscape. There are many small harbours and docks along Fife's coastline and the villages of Anstruther and Pittenweem are known as fishing villages.
Fife was many fascinating landmarks and places of interest. Balmerino Abbey (often known as St Edward's Abbey) was founded in the early 13th century by monks from Melrose Abbey. There is a small fee to visit the Abbey which all goes back in to restoration and the upkeep of the site.
Other landmarks and areas of beauty include Dunfermline Abbey, Falkirk Palace, the Fife Folk Museum, Tentsmuir Forest and the Lomond Hills.
The Fife Coastal Path is a popular walk for visitors to the area. The long distance footpath runs from the Tay Bridge all the way to Culross and covers a distance of 82 miles.
Many beautiful seaside villages can be discovered along the walk and it usually takes most ramblers just under a week to complete.
A varied selection of wildlife can often be seen on the walk including puffins and porpoises. Along the footpath are several castles including Aberdour Castle and Macduff's Castle. The footpath is well maintained and is looked after by the Fife Coast and Countryside Trust.
Fife is a peninsula on the North Sea coast and can be accessed by one of three bridges; the Forth Road Bridge, the Tay Road Bridge or the Kincardine Bridge. It should be noted that the Tay and Forth bridges are still toll bridges despite local unrest over the issue.
