1. Wemyss Caves
Home to some of the most important Pictish carvings in the world and on the edge of a picturesque wee village. Definitely worth a detour one sunny afternoon
Where: East Wemyss, KY1 4RT
The chippy many locals use. Freshly cooked fish and chips and well worth a wee wait. Take your fish suppers and sit at the harbour on sunny evenings. Life doesn’t get better.
Where: 17 Shore Street, Anstruther, KY10 3EA
Like a ceilidh? On Friday nights, you can learn to shoogle! Hoolie club on Saturday nights.
Where: Market St, St Andrews, KY16 9PB
Often overlooked, which is criminal. There’s a palace and gardens, both lovely. The whole village is charming and well worth a wander.
Where: KY12 8JH
So aptly named. Each seat in this gem of a restaurant has views of either Edinburgh, Aberdour Harbour or Hawkcraig Cliffs. Now that’s clever. Not the cheapest but a treat.
Where: Hawkcraig Point, Aberdour, KY3 0TZ
Jannettas is fabulous. We highly recommend the Scottish tablet ice cream. We tried it several times to make sure it was good enough.
Where: South Street, St Andrews, KY16 9QR
7. Norman’s Law
It’s a wee hike, but worth it. You’ll be well rewarded at the top with views of the Tay and beyond. Stunning.
Where: Luthrie, KY15 4NY
Even some Fifers don’t know it’s there. Got a family member who’s interested in all things technical? They’ll love this. From the invention of logarithms to Windows 10, it’s all here.
Where: Burntisland, KY3 9AA
9. Chain Walk
Scramble along the base of the cliffs. Chains are bolted into the rock to help you. Brilliant fun.
Where: Elie, KY9 1AD
10. The Blocks
Climb a small ladder to see The Blocks, also known as the Zigzag pier. Best viewed on a rising tide.
Where: St Monans, KY10 2BA
11. Rhubarb Gifts
Like a potter around a gift shop? It’s full of surprises. We love the Terramundi Money Pots and diffusers.
Cupar, KY15 5HS
Handmade chocolates from Pittenweem – who knew? If you love your sweet stuff this shop is worth a visit.
Where: 9 High St, KY10 2LA
We love this quirky cottage. It’s the perfect place for a cosy weekend. Next to Pillars of Hercules organic cafe.
Where: Falkland, Fife, KY15 7AD
14. The Grange Inn
Lunch at one of the best restaurants in Fife is a steal at £16 for three courses. We love the clock beer pudding.
Where: St Andrews, KY16 8LJ
15. The Hideaway
As the name suggests, it’s a wee bit off the beaten track. But worth a visit and we recommend the black pudding stack with brioche, poached egg and bacon.
Where: Dunfermline, KY12 0UB
