Only a 90 minute drive from Edinburgh – and easily accessible by those arriving into Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee airports – the area is awash with history, heritage and stunning scenery, combined with all manner of activities: we are the home of golf, not just in and around nearby St Andrews but with an array of classic courses that run along the coastline from Leven and Lundin Links to Earlsferry & Elie, Crail and Kingsbarns.

You’ll find sailing at Largo Bay, Elie and St Andrews together with boat trips galore, including wildlife tours to the Scottish Natural Heritage Isle of May. For foodies, there are few better destinations: Michelin-starred restaurants at The Peat Inn and The Cellar combine with country pubs selling dishes made from locally sourced ingredients. You’ll find award-winning seafood landed on the harbours on the Neuk – and a magnificent menu of small companies, artisan producers, who have made the Neuk their kitchen.

There are cycle ways and footpaths crisscrossing the area: the Fife Coastal Path provides a fantastic way to discover villages, towns, cliff walks, sandy beaches and the open countryside. There are also festivals to be enjoyed: from the Crail Food Festival that showcases much of the area’s provenance to the internationally renowned Pittenweem Arts Festival and the East Neuk Music Festival.
