Hiking: Coastal hike in Scotland

The Kingdom of Fife

The Kingdom of Fife can look back on moving history. The Picts and Scots competed here for supremacy and fought together against invasions of the Viking tribes from Denmark. At the same time, the sea was the livelihood of fisherman and innumerable villages are witness to the prosperity and to the traditions originating from fishing. Extensive parts of the coast are under conservation and the former kingdom of Fife appears largely untouched and wild.
