Introduction

Description

Welcome to Fife & Perth's, Coast and Seaside...

The Kingdom of Fife lies between the Firths of Forth and Tay, and is an ancient Pictish ‘kingdom’. Its three main towns are Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes, but its most famous is the Royal Burgh of St Andrews, on its east coast.

In the south of Fife, looking across the Forth towards Edinburgh lies Dunfermline, a former capital of Scotland now looking across at its younger successor. The impressive Dunfermline Abbey is the final resting place of Scottish royalty, but Dunfermline had lost its ecclesiastical importance after the Reformation of 1560. The production of damask linen was a feature of the town following the industrial revolution, but more important now is the shipbuilding associated with the naval dockyard at nearby Rosyth.

Kirkcaldy is on a small east-facing sandy bay. The town was home to the linoleum industry, but this declined in the second half of the twentieth century. Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery is considered one of Scotland’s finest and was endowed by John Nairn of the local family associated with floor coverings, which remains in Kirkcaldy. There is a long shopping street parallel to the sea front and the town centre is a conservation area. Ravenscraig Castle dominates the eastern approaches to the bay. Inland Glenrothes is a new town that has attracted a number of high-tech companies to ‘Silicon Glen’.

The east corner of Fife is called the ‘East Neuk’ and is a collection of small bays, a local architectural feature being Dutch style gable ends. To the north is St Andrews, Royal Burgh, former ecclesiastical capital of Scotland, home of the third oldest University in the English-speaking world, and the “home of golf“. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club, based at St Andrews, presides over the game, and the Old Course, the most famous of seven in the town, is often the venue of the Open Championship. To the east of the town are the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral, once Scotland’s largest building. Along the wide beaches to the north of St Andrews is the Tentsmuir forest, a nature reserve that is home to butterflies and Tentsmuir Point where hundreds of seals join waders, seaduck and wildfowl.
