Fife is a region on the east coast of Scotland, with 117 miles of coastline, a semi-industrial area in the south, and a rural area in the north. Fife is known for its local produce (hence several famous restaurants), and annual events like the Anstruther Muster harbour festival, the Pittenween Arts Festival, and the Fife Show, which is a traditional agricultural show. It is also a destination for walkers, birdwatchers, and dolphin spotting. In addition to outdoor recreation opportunities, which include over 300 miles of cycle paths linking towns and villages with the countryside, there are numerous historical attractions, including the former royal palace in Falkland. Fife also has the necessary conveniences of good local schools and good transport by plane, train, or car.
