Come for the golf. Stay for the cycling. Plus the incredible history, heritage, and everything else.
There’s no getting away from Fife’s proud place as the Home of Golf, but bikes are extremely welcome everywhere but on the greens!
So get out and explore the ancestral palaces of Scottish monarchs, discover hidden beaches along stunning shorelines, savour a sip of whisky and/or craft beer and much more… the Kingdom of Fife is as unique as it is beautiful.
When you think of golf, you think about the hallowed Old Course at St Andrews. But Fife boasts 49 other courses to play on, from the fairways of Ladybank to the 600 year old club at Dunfermline. There’s something for every golfer in Fife.
If you fancy some world-class walking, look no further than the 117 miles of Scotland’s longest continuous coastal path. Each section is beautiful in its own right - you’ll find quaint fishing villages, picturesque seaside towns and historic landmarks - so whatever distance you walk, you’re in for a real treat.
Fife’s restaurants, breweries and distilleries are booming. Sample craft beers, gins and whiskies directly at their source, experience some of Scotland’s freshest, finest seafood or farm-to-table fare in award-winning restaurants, or find your own local produce at farmers’ markets. You won’t go hungry here!
Fife packs a big punch when it comes to size vs sheer variety of things to do, so getting out on your bike is a brilliant idea. From the quiet countryside to the stunning coastline of the North Sea, you’ll never run out of places to cycle and things to see.
There’s never a dull day in the Kingdom of Fife, so explore, enjoy, and experience all it has to offer.
