About The Fife Coastal Trail Tour:
Experience the traditions, scenery and flavours of Fife on this full day tour from Edinburgh. Meet your professional Lothian Motor Coaches guide at Charlotte Square in the centre of Edinburgh. As well as insightful English-language commentary you can expect quality on board amenities including: air conditioning, reclining seats, footrests, Wi-Fi, USB charging and even a washroom.
Your first stop after departing Charlotte Square and crossing the River Forth is the eastern coastal town of St Andrews. Best known for its world-class university and golf courses, you'll be given plenty of free time to explore the sites and attractions that interest you most. Watch a tee off on the legendary Old Course, mill about the ruins of St Andrews Castle or simply admire the town's Medieval and Victorian architecture.
After finishing up in St Andrews the trail continues south towards Kingsbarns Distillery & Visitor Centre. Created out of the derelict East Newhall Farmstead, Kingsbarns remains a family-owned and run business dedicated to producing quality single malt whiskies.
They run a variety of tours throughout the day from 1-hour guided visits to more in-depth 2-hour tours led by senior staff members. There's also the option of the new Discover Darnley's tour, where you'll be taken on a journey around Darnley’s Gin distillery. All experiences finish with a tasting session and admission tickets (not included with this tour) act as a discount voucher for the on-site gift shop.
The final coach stop takes you to fishing village of Anstruther, where you'll have an hour to chill by the ancient harbourside, amble down the rustic streets, or savour a freshly prepared fish supper from local chip shop.
The return journey to Edinburgh follows a scenic coastal route which will take you through several more traditional villages. It concludes back at Charlotte Square.
