The Fife Trail

The Kingdom overflows with football history so much so that the Fife Trail is in reality four. The first is one that could actually start in Kinross before taking in Ballingry/Lochore, Kelty and Kingseat down to Dunfermline. The second begins in Markinch and runs down the former coal-mining spine of the county through Cardenden, Lochgelly, Cowdenbeath, Crossgates and the villages in between to the Forth at Inverkeithing. The third is the coastal one through the old industry of Leven, Methil and Kirkcaldy and wee towns along the North Sea shore and finally there is the rural north that combines rolling countryside, St. Andrews and the fishing villages of the East Neuk. For all a car is needed and each represents a day out on its own.
