Walk the Fife Coastal Path

The Fife Coastal Path leads from Kincardine (on the Firth of Forth) to Newburgh (on the Firth of Tay), following the coastline through the numerous picturesque fishing villages of Fife, including the famous East Neuk. At nearly 120 miles in length, it's a wonderful way to get a close-up look at this fascinating area of Scotland. And it goes past the front door of Barra Cottage!

For more information, have a look at the official Fife Coastal Path website.


Play some of the best courses in Scotland

Golf has been played in Fife for over 500 years. There are more than 40 golf courses here, so you can see why it is still one of the prime reasons that people come. In Fife, golf is in the air!

Golf aficionados will want to pay a visit (or several) to the mecca of the game – St Andrews, home of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club. It's just a little over half an hour from Barra Cottage by car.

Consult the excellent website of the St Andrews Links Trust for details of how to book a round on St Andrews Links.
