  Retired Fishing Boats Beside The Mighty River Tay
by scotlandscotour

Across the Firth of Forth, the estuary on which Edinburgh lies, is the Royal County of Fife - A beautiful and rich county riddled with history but largely overlooked.

Focus tends to be upon St Andrews and has increased since the prince went to study there but Fife is packed with tiny gems and beauty.

Falkland Palace and the fishing harbours (like Crail) make delightful days out and form a wonderful tour, which can include Dunfermline Abbey and Culross if you can drive.

It is all a refreshing contrast to the city congestion and built up environment of Edinburgh - so if in Edinburgh for a while, treat yourself to two days out, one to Perth and the other around Fife.

My picture shows old fishing boats, either decaying or being slowely restored, on the quayside of thr River Tay - north Fife.

Address: Fife - just north of Edinburgh.
Directions: Head across the Forth road bridge and turn east!
