The Kingdom of Fife
With two ancient capitals of Scotland, Dunfermline (political/royal) and St Andrews (ecclesiastical), Fife has played a major part in the history of Scotland and Dunfermline’s old abbey is the resting pace of 22 of Scotland’s Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses.
This historic old kingdom is basically made up of three parts, the old industrial areas of south and south west, including Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath and Kirkcaldy, the rural north and north east around Cupar and St Andrews and the coastal fringes once mainly associated with fishing but now very popular recreation areas for visitors.The fishing may have departed but the legacy is still there in the very picturesque fishing villages like Lundin Links and Lower Largo and the communities that make up the Neuk of Fife - Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem and Kilrenny.
St Andrews, home to Scotland’s oldest university, is world renowned as the home of golf. This is the mecca of golf which attracts visitors from all over the world, hoping to have the chance to play on the hallowed links.
Fife, being so close to the populace of Edinburgh and the central belt, has some marvellous visitor attractions based on history, marine life, past industries and, of course, golf. (199)
