What to expect

Go on an adventure and visit the famous Fife County, or as the Scots would call it, "The Kingdom of Fife". Begin this fun-filled tour by meeting up with an engaging tour guide at Rabbie's Café Bar, Waterloo Place in Edinburgh. You will travel north aboard a coach, and go through the Queensferry Crossing while having a great view of one of Scotland's greatest man-made landmarks, the Forth Rail Bridge. You will then enter the Kingdom of Fife and stop in the traditional fishing village of Anstruther (known as 'Enster' locally), where you can check out the old cobbled streets and take a walk along the seafront to the harbour. From Anstruther, you will continue further north and enter the medieval town of St Andrews. St Andrew is the patron Saint of Scotland, and according to legend, his remains were washed up on the Fife coast. St Andrews is also home to the third oldest university in Britain as well as a beautiful ruined castle perched on a cliff; you'll have 2 and a half hours to explore the town. After St. Andrews, you'll travel through the rolling countryside of central Fife to Falkland Village. Falkland Palace dominates this old village, and it was one of the main residences of the old Royal family of Scotland, the Stewarts (Stuarts). Aside from the palace, the village is simply one of the most beautiful villages in Scotland, and it has an array of old cottages and narrow winding streets. Right after Falkland, you'll return to Edinburgh by passing by Loch Leven, where Mary, the Queen of Scots was imprisoned because of her Protestant nobility. Last, you will cross the Firth of Forth and return to Rabbie's Café Bar, where you can unwind and relish the amazing journey you just had.
