Cross the bridge into the Kingdom of Fife. Its easternmost stretch of coastline is home to a string of picturesque villages, each having a distinctive character and charm. Stop in the traditional fishing village of Anstruther

Stroll down old cobbled streets and the network of alleyways and wynds. Enjoy a walk along the seafront to the harbor.
