This lovely stretch of coastline was described as the "fringe of gold" by King James VI.
Visit its quaint little towns and fishing villages with their cobbled streets and houses with red pan tiles that nestle along the coastline, such as Pittenweem, Crail, St. Monans and Anstruther with its fishing museum and arguably, even more famous fish and chip shop!

St. Andrews is Scotland's oldest university town and, of course, its also known as the home of golf, but this unique town has many charms - historic buildings, beautiful beaches, a huge variety of eating places, from cosy cafes with home made cakes to Michelin starred restaurants.
Its a wonderful place to shop and not just for golfing supplies and souvenirs. Explore the town centre with its cornucopia of boutiques, bookshops, antique shops, delicatessens and specialist bakeries, or just enjoy a refreshing drink in a pavement cafe and watch the world go by.
