Have you ever wanted to visit the famous Scottish wilderness? Are you fascinated by the mystical folklore, the charming fishing villages, the wild scenery and the fascinating history that’s been the pride of Scotland for centuries? This one day tour from Edinburgh takes you to some of the most beautiful sites of the Scottish eastern coast, such as Loch Leven and the ancient village of St. Andrews Visiting Scotland’s home of golf and the fishing villages of the Ancient Kingdom of Fife, you will have the opportunity to enjoy some additional options such as St. Andrews Castle and Cathedral.
You will leave Edinburgh, crossing the iconic Forth Bridge, into the ancient “Kingdom of Fife”. Enjoy a photo stop at Aberdour before continuing into the East Neuk of Fife.
You will then make a stop in the town of Anstruther, home of the Scottish Fisheries Museum, before moving on to the villages of Pittenweem, Crail and St. Monans, once thriving fishing centres which were made prosperous by trade within the continent.

Enjoy approximately three hours of free time to explore its medieval buildings and wonderful cobbled streets in the centre, and have lunch and refreshments.
