Day Tour (dep. Edinburgh)
Family Friendly, First Timers
On this tour, you explore the great Kingdom of Fife and discover its fascinating history and wonderful scenery. This tour is all about Fife and to get there we cross the Firth of Forth – this is your perfect chance to get a photograph of the famous Forth Railway Bridge.
We travel to Falkland and you’ll be able to walk around this beautiful village, where time seems to have stood still. Fans of Outlander will recognise it as post-war Inverness and may remember the iconic scene filmed here where Claire saw Jamie’s ghost for the first time. You can browse the craft shops and there is an option of visiting the beautiful Palace and Gardens*, a royal palace of the Scottish Kings.
St Andrews is the star attraction of this tour and you’ll have a few hours here to explore the town’s various sites on your own. As the spiritual home of golf, it is a must-see for all devotees of the game. You can also explore the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral* or St. Andrews Castle*. As well as its many historical sites the town also boasts a stunning beach, which you may recognise from Chariots of Fire. Or if you’re a foodie, we have to recommend Janetta’s ice-cream shop – they have over 100 flavors so there is something for everyone.
As we begin our journey back to Edinburgh we’ll explore the East Neuk. This is an often forgotten corner of Fife that has some particularly beautiful historic fishing villages and stunning coastal scenery. You’ll have the chance to visit Anstruther, well known for having one of the world’s best fish and chip shops!
