Countryside, coastline and captivating history, what is not to love about this beautiful corner of Scotland?
With so much of the great outdoors to enjoy, it’s a good job Fife is one of the driest and sunniest counties in Scotland.
If you’re wondering what a ‘day in the life in Fife’ might look like, here is one of our favourites:
An early wake up call is required for this one! Get your walking boots on, pack some snacks and head to Falkland to beat the sunrise. If you fancy an even earlier wake up call and a longer ascent, park up in Falkland and follow the East Lomond walking routes. For a shorter ascent (and more importantly a bit of a lie in), you can park up at the telephone tower, for a steep but much shorter 30 minute climb to the summit.
Find a spot sheltered from the wind, get out your breakfast-to-go and enjoy the sunrise, with views over the whole of Fife, surrounding hills and the famous Edinburgh bridge’s.
For a post-descent refuel, head to the Pillars of Hercules, a quaint farm shop and café with a wonderful range of homemade cakes, snacks, sandwiches and baked potatoes.
Depending on the route taken, it’s probably just gone lunch time. Navigate back to the car, you’re headed to St Andrews.
Following an action packed morning, you may be left feeling a little fatigued – the spa is calling! Our guests have exclusive discounted access to the Fairmont Hotel Spa, and what better time to utilise it.
With the most stunning views over St Andrews Bay, the spa is equipped with ten luxurious treatment rooms, a 16-meter swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. You’re in for an afternoon of total relaxation.
It’s now nearly time for dinner. There is a great selection of restaurants in St Andrews for being a relatively small town, some of which are ran by Michelin star chefs. Our guests are able to redeem discounts at Forgan’s, Rouge, Playfairs and the St Andrews Brewing Co, all that is required is you provide proof of residing with us, in the form of a booking confirmation or Kingask keyring on your property keys.
You may now be feeling as though it’s time to hit the hay. Enjoy a good night’s sleep in your Kingask holiday home before another action packed day in Fife.
