The Private House Stay's Guide
The southwest of Fife was built on Coal and linoleum and other industries that are much run-down whereas the prosperous-looking rural northeast couldn't be more different. Northeast Fife consists of St Andrews and the East Neuk and this is the area to see. The East Neuk of Fife is a string of beautiful old fishing villages. Other destinations worth a visit are Falkland, Cupar and the Howe of Fife. Here, you'll find Falkland Palace, one of Scotland's most remarkable historic buildings. The Fife Coastal trail is a favourite amongst walkers.
