Fife

Holiday in Fife for a short break, but rest assured, you’ll still find plenty to keep you happy for a fortnight on a self-catering holiday in Fife. Fife is well placed for exploring the history, culture and leisure attractions of the western corner of Scotland. It lies within an easy drive of Edinburgh, the historic city of Dundee and the even older city of Perth. From historic castles to sandy beaches, famous golf courses, ancient fishing villages and busy town centres. Not for nothing has it been voted Scotland’s No.1 Outdoor Destination’ by Scottish Natural Heritage for many years in a row. Having the highest number of national attractions in Scotland, also adds to its visitor appeal. Fife also boasts the county's capital with Edinburgh playing host to a wealth of arts and culture festivals like the Tattoo, the Film & TV and The Fringe.
