Full description
Head north to Fife on a full day of exploring, departing from Edinburgh. You will get a sample of life in the area and come to understand the culture and history of the region.

Your trip begins as you cross the Firth of Forth, passing the famous Forth Railway Bridge, before your first stop, St. Andrews. The town boasts a stunning beach, great cafes and shops, a beautiful university, and an ancient cathedral. Additionally, it is known as the spiritual home of golf.

Next, continue west to Falkland, a beautiful village frozen in time. You can browse the craft shops or visit Falkland Palace, which has the oldest tennis courts in use anywhere in the world. Then make your way to a forgotten corner of Fife, East Neuk. Here you will pass through historic fishing villages and take in the stunning coastal scenery.

At the end of your exploring, make a final stop in Anstruther and enjoy a fish supper feast, a meal fit for a Scot!

Worked out perfectly as I wanted to explore these sites on my own.

Steven was our guide. Fun guy and nice to be around someone who loves their job. I liked the way this was set up giving us time on our own at the sites. We were a bit rushed at the last stop, Falkland Palace but overall a very good day and experience.
