We have added a Fife Gallery to our website. This was prompted by friends launching a range of bus tours called see you jimmy tours and one of the many tours they do focuses on the coastal area of Fife.

It occurred to us that we had plenty of photos of this area but had not thought to display them. However, it also occurred that we didn’t have ones for all the places other people would be interested in. So here are the places we plan to visit again and make sure we capture the essence of Fife.

Key parts of any trip to Fife ought to include:

  • St Andrews – the home of golf
  • Falkland Palace  the Palace was one of the many homes to Mary Queen of Scots and the picturesque village of Falkland where it is situated  often wins the national village in bloom contests.
  • The East Neuk of Fife coastal villages with their distinctive stepped roofs and small winding streets and especially Pittenweem, a working harbour village full of art galleries and a delightful chocolate cafe.
  • The southern banks of the Tay estuary  from Tentsmuir forest and its expansive beach to Newburgh just over the border in Perthshire.

One of the most popular attractions for photographers of sea birds or wildlife is a trip to the Isle of May from Anstruther.

If you want to take pictures of Puffins then you will find more than you can shake a stick at on the Isle of May ( about 60,000 of them). For a sneak preview of a special puffins gallery we will have soon check out our Fife gallery.
