There is an ancient area of Scotland which juts out into the North Sea between the rivers Forth and Tay – east of Edinburgh and south of Dundee. It is a short drive from Edinburgh.It is known as The Kingdom of Fife and is a fascinating area of Scotland. Here are many fishing towns to be explored and also St Andrew’s where lies the famous golf course and where Prince William met his Catherine !! Be sure to visit Falklands, Crail, Pittenweem and Anstruther (where is the most highly rated fish and chip shop in the UK ). Some time can be spent in Dunfermline – the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie of New York’s Carnegie Hall fame.
This can easily be a good and scenic day’s excursion from the Arthouse in Leith.
You might also like to make time to drive to Dundee and Perth. Both are fine examples of smaller Scottish cities. They are not in Fife but are not so far away from there as the crow flies !!
