Town and city breaks in Fife
Staying in a Fife hotel allows visitors to explore the ruins of the Abbey and Palace in Dunfermline, hometown of US steel magnate Andrew Carnegie. Have a look around the local towns of Kirkcaldy and St. Andrews. The administrative capital of the county, Glenrothes, was carefully planned in the 1940s as a post-Second World War new town of industry and residence. In the past few decades, it has been awarded multiple horticultural awards, as well as 'Britain In Bloom' and 'Beautiful Scotland' contests for its charm and beauty as well as the quality of its parks and landscaping. Kirkcaldy is a popular town to visit for its fairs. It has the honour of having Europe's longest (in length) street fair. This street fair is held every Easter and boasts more than 200 rides and attractions. Dunfermline is one of the biggest towns in Fife and was the capital of Scotland in days gone by. The town has an 11th-century abbey, which was constructed by King Malcolm III. It is also the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie and Charles I. St. Andrews is a popular destination with golfing enthusiasts for its golf courses. The sport has been played in this town for nearly 600 years and the most popular course is known as the Old Course. The town is also home to St. Andrews University, which is the third-oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of the UK's most prestigious. St Andrews Cathedral was once the ecclesiastical centre of our northern neighbour until the John Locke-powered Scottish Reformation saw a chain of religious destruction and desecration. The structure now lies in ruins, but is still provides a pleasant, boisterous and beneficial afternoon out before returning to your Fife hotel.
Holidays in the Fife countryside
The miles of unspoilt and lush Fife countryside offers a relaxing and rejuvenating way to spend a holiday. Be sure to visit Cairnie Fruit Farm and Mega Maze in Cupar. It is spread over 120 acres and is a great place for the family to spend a day out. Walking the Fife Coastal Path is a wonderful contrast to your cosy Fife hotel, the wind blowing through your hair all the way from Forth Bridge to the Tay Bridge in the south. Also near Cupar is the Scottish Deer Centre. Spread over 55 acres, this Centre is home to 12 species of deer, a wolf pack, wildcats, otters and many other rare Scottish animals. Adults and children will enjoy a visit to the Fife Animal Park, which is located near Collessie. There are many animals to see and numerous activities to keep children busy and on top of this, adjacent to the Park is a Nature Reserve also teeming with birds and wildlife.
Beach holidays in Fife
Fife has some of the finest beaches in Scotland and boasts miles of unspoilt shoreline. The Silver Sands Beach in Aberdour offers an amazing view of the islands of Inchcolm and Inchmickery. It is located alongside the famous Coastal Path and is definitely worth a visit. You can also go to north of Fife for a short break to enjoy the soft white sand of Kinshaldy or Tensmuir Sands, and, as an added bonus, both very popular places for spotting seals, water birds and even dolphins.
Attractions in Fife
One of the most popular attractions in Fife is the St. Andrews Aquarium. This interactive Aquarium lets visitors feed seals and allows them to get a closer glimpse of other marine life, such as lobsters, black tip reef sharks, seahorses and even piranhas. Be sure to check out the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Anstruther to get an understanding of Fife's fishing history. The British Golf Museum, located in St. Andrews, is also worth visiting and gives a clear understanding about the town's long love affair with the sport. Nature lovers will enjoy visiting the self-sustaining research and education centre called the Earthship Fife Visitor Centre. Make sure to get to East Neuk from your hotel in Fife, to explore Scotland's Secret Bunker. This bunker is 100 feet underground and huge. There is a 150-metre long tunnel leading to the bunker. It was built in case a nuclear war breaks out! Book a Best Western hotel in Fife to experience this wild Scottish county first hand.
