ST. ANDREWS & THE KINGDOM OF FIFE
This is a relatively compact region of remarkable variety.
From the delights of ancient St. Andrews, the home of Golf and Scotland’s oldest university to the picturesque old and well preserved fishing villages on Fife’s east coast. You also have the chance to visit Dunfermline, once the capital of Scotland, with its historic abbey where the grave of “King Robert the Bruce” is located under the pulpit.
Fife has many other ROYAL connections including the Palace of Falkland, a former residence or Mary, Queen of Scots. The palace is set in the medieval village of Falkland a hidden gem and well worth a visit in its own right. Likewise with the historic village of Culross, with its palace, abbey and townhouse (erected 1626), it seems undisturbed by the passing of time.
With the lovely coastal scenery, the peaceful inland countryside and your drive into Fife over either the Forth or Tay Bridges you are guaranteed an unforgettable day.
