From Edinburgh: St Andrews & Fishing Villages of Fife Tour

1. From Edinburgh: St Andrews & Fishing Villages of Fife Tour

Travel through the historic country of Fife on this day trip from Edinburgh aboard an airconditioned bus. Dive into sights that you see along the way with live commentary. Stop in the charming towns of Anstruther, St. Andrews, and South Queensferry. Leave Edinburgh and admire views of the iconic Forth Rail Bridge as you cross the Firth of Forth, and enter into the ancient “Kingdom of Fife.” Pass through Aberdour before continuing into the East Neuk of Fife.  Take in the views as you pass thorugh the picturesque villages of St. Monans and Pittenween, which were once thriving fishing. Reach the town of Anstruther, the home of the Scottish Fisheries Museum, where the bus will make a stop.  Leaving Anstruther, journey through Crail and then arrive in the beautiful medieval town of St. Andrews in time for lunch. Have free time to walk around the town which is famous as the home of golf and has the best-known golf course in the world. Spend your three-hours of free time purchasing lunch, walking down cobbled streets, seeing the ruins of the cathedral and castle, or visiting Scotland’s oldest university, where Prince William met Kate Middleton. Heading homewards, travel across the Lomond hills, descending to Loch Leven (where Mary Queen of Scot was imprisoned). Make a brief stop to admire magnificent views of the Forth Bridges in South Queensferry before returning to Edinburgh.

What people are saying about Fife

Our tour guide Robbie was very informative, he even told us about how Scotland formed geographically millions of years ago, and how that affected its climate and landscape. I was amazed to hear the highlands of Scotland formed from a piece of land once connected to North America, and that's why you can find granite rock there, while the lowlands of Scotland formed from a different geological "event" and therefore has a different landscape. You can read more about it at Wikipedia--fascinating info! Robbie played the "Outlander" main theme music on the way home and it gave me goosebumps. I told him this and he said his mother used to sing this melody to him as a lullaby when he was a child. Wish I was back in Scotland--life there is so much more tied to history than in the US, and therefore every moment there feels more significant and fulfilling. Hard to describe, but maybe some will understand my meaning.

Willie was a great guide who shared a lot of stories, not only about outlander but also other stories about the history of scotland. He offered to help take Photos and gave us a lot of good Jokes.

We had a great tour with Mike. We was informative and so kind. We had plenty of time to see St. Andrews and walk around the town.

Bruce M was an engaging, entertaining and educational guide. Our group loved the excursion.

Informative, engaging, and our guide, Carrie, was the best!
