Cupar & North Fife

There is so much more to Fife than just The Home of Golf. The talented Claire Hubbard (in conjunction with Centre of Stewardship & North Fife Local Tourism Association) has come up with the ultimate map of North Fife! There is guaranteed to be something for everyone while staying at Elderburn Lodges, so here are our top picks:

Events

Fife Show first started in 1821 and is a family favourite day out. Held in Cupar on Saturday 18th May 2019 it showcases livestock, machinery, food and drink, trade stands and amusements for children. The Show is run by volunteers and its aim is to promote, support and work with agriculture in Fife and beyond. 

Food

Fife Farmers’ Market is held on various dates at Cupar, St Andrews, Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline. They are proud to supply the freshest local produce including meats, cheese, seafood, preserves, beverages, baking, and crafts. In other words… absolutely worth a visit.

Outdoors

Fife Coastal Path stretches 117 miles from the Firth of Forth in the south, to the Firth of Tay in the north, the route offers an unrivalled walking experience. From easy and level, to wild and demanding it can be completed in bitesize chunks, and suitable for all the family. Furthermore, there are some spectacular views along the way – don’t forget your camera.

Family

Scottish Deer Centre covering 55 acres and showcasing 13 species of deer from around the world, Fife’s only wolf pack, otters and other rare Scottish species including the wildcat. They also host Raptor World Bird of Prey centre, have indoor and outdoor play areas, shop and café, ranger tours and daily bird of prey shows.

Sports

Kingarrock Hickory Golf Course is the only remaining Hickory Golf Course in the UK, first establish in 1924. Embrace the gentler pace of 1920s golf. You can play the way the game was played a century ago, when golf was a game of skill, strategy & technique not driven by innovation and technology. Every round played helps support the National Trust for Scotland’s vital conservation work.

Heritage

Fife Folk Museum is a window on Fife’s past. In the village of Ceres, it
offers an interesting and entertaining day out for all the family with activities for all ages.
The museum is housed in a range of older buildings including former weavers cottages, the old weigh-house and the tolbooth.

So, once you have exhausted yourself, curl up in our cosy lodges and relax!
