Fife Guide

The peninsula of Fife lies between the Firth of Tay and Firth of Forth. The east coast faces the North Sea. The best walking is along the coast and in the Lomond Hills. These hills are extinct volcanoes with West Lomond the highest summit (522 metres, 1,713 ft). The coast has several small harbours which can be linked by the coast path which include Anstruther, Pittenweem and the university town of St. Andrews.
