Fife and Perthshire Vacations
Just across the water from Edinburgh lies the ancient Kingdom of Fife with its beautiful seaside town of St. Andrews, the historic home of golf and a legendary links course. Whether you cross the Firth of Forth into Fife by road or rail, take in the impressive sight of the new Queensferry Crossing, the Forth Road Bridge and the iconic UNESCO World Heritage designated Forth Rail Bridge – three bridges spanning three centuries!
A collection of picture-perfect fishing villages punctuates the Fife coastline while further inland the arable landscape of barley fields grows the key ingredient to Scotland’s greatest export – Scotch Whisky. Outlander fans will enjoy time in the quaint villages of Culross or Falkland, both used as filming locations in the TV series. You can brush up on your royal history at Falkland Palace & Garden – home to Britain’s oldest original tennis courts! – which was the country residence of the Royal Stuarts and much loved by Mary, Queen of Scots. Continue in the footsteps of Mary, Queen of Scots to Loch Leven where she was imprisoned until her daring escape in 1568.
The city of Dunfermline is one of Scotland’s newest cities, but also holds the title of once having been Scotland’s ancient capital city and it is the resting place of Robert the Bruce. The industrial tycoon Andrew Carnegie was also born here before making his way across the Atlantic to find his fortune. And the artistic hub of Dundee also beckons, now home to the impressive new V&A design museum furthering the city’s reputation as a place of discovery, inspiration, and learning.
Further north, the wooded wild places of Perthshire bring an abundance of wildlife and fast-flowing fishing opportunities of the mighty River Tay. The county boasts many fine attractions including Blair Castle, with its impressive collection of historical artefacts, and Scone Palace, once the crowning place of Scottish kings. Dunkeld is a picturesque little town on the banks of the River Tay, steeped in history with a cathedral and many restored 17th & 18th century houses.
