The kingdom of Fife has plenty to do for everyone, including a number of interesting visitor attractions. There are sports of every kind, including, of course, the sport which makes Fife famous as the home of Golf. Fife also has some wonderful dedicated
cycle routes where you can enjoy quieter spots away from the hustle and bustle of too much traffic.
Of course I also recommend you check out the weather before planning your activities, and deciding which visitor attractions to go to.
North Queensferry - is just over the Forth Road Bridge and a mere 5 miles south of Dunfermline.
Deep Sea World, Scotland's National Aquarium - virtually right under the Awesome Forth Rail Bridge.
This attraction houses the largest collection of sharks in Europe and is one
of the world's longest underwater tunnels. The resident seals usually
delight me, but you can also see the piranha or touch live exhibits in the
rock pools. They are open all year apart from Christmas Day.
Call +44(0)1383 411 880 for admission times and costs.
Earthship Fife Visitor Centre - this amazing visitor centre is quite
unique. Fife tries hard to be 'good' tot he environment -
and this 'earthship' (which I understand is the only one like it in
Scotland) is made from used car tyres and drink cans. Needless to say
it provides its own electricity, water and sewerage treatment as well as its
own heating. There are guided tours as well as special workshops.
For details of opening hours call +44(0)1592 891 884.
The Harbourmaster's House provides the opportunity to learn more about
Fife's unique fishing trade and indeed what makes the coast of the Kingdom
so special. As well as the centre there is also a shop and a Bistro.
For details call +44(0)1592 656 080.
The Aquarium at St Andrews house not only our local friendly seals, but
also some other delightful marine life such as seahorses as well as perhaps
a slightly more frightening piranhas. There are some new displays from
the Amazon and a host of other tropical sea life. It's well worth a visit.
It's open daily in the summer but reduced hours in the winter. For
details call +44(0)1334 475 985
Near St Andrews
Scotland's Secret Bunker. This is an amazing place. You could
spend hours here. It is set underneath a Scottish farmhouse and a tunnel
leads to the Secret Bunker. There's around 24,000 feet of secret
accommodation based on 2 floors, and is 100 foot underground. It has a
50's setting - and will give you insight into the secret world of the cold
war government and how they would have survived! There is a shop in the
entrance hall and a coffee shop set out like a 'canteen' on one of the
floors below ground. It's open from April until October. For
exact opening hours and charges, call +44(0)1333 310 301.
Both these visitor attractions near St Andrews are worth a visit.
Near the town of Cupar - there's a couple of 'animal' visitor attractions just outside Cupar:
The Scottish Deer Farm - The delightful park is home to 9 species
of deer; as well as being a wolf centre and having the Birds of Prey
section. There is a lovely courtyard shopping area and coffee shop.
There are some lovely picnic spots and walkways; and they also
organise seasonal events. They're open most of the year, but admission
hours to see the animals is less in the winter months. For information
on opening hours and admission charges phone +44(0)1337 810 391.
Kingdom Animal Centre - Just a few miles further along. Some of
the residents include parrots, monkeys, donkeys wallabies
and llammas; and more are being added all the time. There is a
restaurant with good long opening hours. Another great place to take
the family. It's also been the venue for some music events. For
