Destination guide

Fife is perfect for a wee summer getaway

If you're looking for a wee break filled with ancient castles, glistening lochs and more outdoor activities than you can shake your kilt at, consider a visit to the Kingdom of Fife. Scotland may not have the dreamy climes found in Southern Europe, but it packs a serious historical punch, and when you throw in friendly local folks and quaint towns and villages, you've got the makings of an awesome vacation destination. It doesn't matter if you're coming to taste the country's fine whiskies, or to explore the great outdoors. When you stay in a Fife vacation rental, this part of Scotland's got you covered.

Things to do

Fife has layers of history dating back centuries

You won't be short of places to visit when you stay in a Fife vacation rental. A good place to start is the ruins of St. Andrew's Castle, which have overlooked the sea since it was built in the 13th century. More history can be found at St. Salvator's Chapel, which was used by the Catholic military to reclaim the nearby castle from the Protestants. If you stay in a Fife vacation rental near Craigtoun Country Park, you can easily while away a day exploring its family-friendly attractions. Alternatively, you can catch one of the theater or dance productions at the 1930s Byre Theatre.

Activities

Charming beaches and miles of hiking in Fife

The windswept beaches have a certain rugged charm and if you're going to visit just 1, make it West Sands, just outside the town of St. Andrews, which was used in the 1980s movie Chariots of Fire. Bundle the kids and your furry friends into the car and head down to beach in summer for some fun in the sun. Scotland is the home of golf and the St. Andrews links is one of the oldest in the country, with clubs being swung on the course since the 15th century. Golfing not your bag? Try the 350 miles of cycling routes or the endless hiking trails.

Weather

Summer season sees Fife's best weather

Scotland's not renowned for its balmy climate, but if you score a Fife vacation rental between June and August you'll likely catch the country's best weather. Unsurprisingly, it's Fife's busiest season, with families descending for a little countryside break or to catch one of the packed calendar of festivals and events. You can score some seriously knocked-down prices in winter, other than during the Hogmanay New Year celebrations, but you'll be limited to what you can do, and warm layers are essential while you're knee-deep in snow. For something in between, consider visiting in spring and fall.

Natural features

Circling buzzards and kestrels in Fife

Nature loving newbies to Fife should make a beeline for the Cullaloe Nature Reserve, which is made up of mature conifer woodland, grassy meadows filled with wild flowers and an ancient loch. These differing ecosystems provide habitats for plenty of wildlife, which change dramatically depending on the season. If you point your binoculars to the sky, you might very well catch a glimpse of circling buzzards or kestrels. During the summer, the grasslands and wetlands are filled with colorful butterflies and dragonflies, while the winter is best for waterfowl. If nature's important to your trip, score a Fife vacation rental nearby.
