Fife, Eastern Scotland
Culross in Fife
This part of Scotland is known as "the Kingdom of Fife", fiercely proud of its separate identity, wedged between the Firths of Forth and Tay, and within easy reach of the cities of Edinburgh and Dundee. There are walks here to suit most tastes, from hikes over hills to easy walks through picturesque villages, and trails along the coast.
Some examples are included here - a short but strenuous climb of East Lomond Hill from the village of Falkland; an easy stroll around the ancient streets of Culross village; and a gentle walk along Kingsbarns beach, returning across the golf course (nearby St Andrews is of course the Home of Golf).
Fife often seems to present a maze of country roads, and often the shortest route between places is along long-established hill tracks.
For those with a few days to spare, the Fife Coastal Path links together many attractive villages around the East Neuk, through St Andrews, and on to the Tay Bridge.
