Easter holiday ideas in Fife
The days are getting longer, daffodils are in bloom and the sun is shining (sometimes!) - it must be Spring!
The prospect of restrictions easing in April and the hope of a summer of fun have boosted our moods just in time for the Easter holidays. From April 2nd, the ‘stay at home’ guidance will be replaced with ‘stay local’, meaning locals can get out and enjoy all that Fife has to offer once again!
Here are the Campion Home team’s ideas for enjoying Easter in Fife...
Embrace the fresh air
While high temperatures aren’t guaranteed, the sun will be shining more often as we move into warmer months. The Easter holidays are the perfect time to get outside and embrace all that Fife’s beautiful countryside has to offer.
The iconic Fife Coastal Path is a great place to start. Stretching for 117 miles from Kincardine to Newburgh, along the Path you’ll see some of Fife’s most beautiful coastal scenery, including Leven beach, Lower Largo and Elie Ruby Bay. Take a look at our blog on Fife’s best beaches here.
If the seaside doesn’t tempt you, why not head to the hills? The uplands of Fife have a number of smaller hills that make for excellent viewpoints – from the highest point of West Lomond to the distinctive ancient volcano of Largo Law.
Support your local food & drink businesses
Restaurants and cafes have been hit hard over the last year, so show your support while enjoying delicious food & drink by paying them a visit this Easter.
Many of them are offering takeaway services so that you can still enjoy them while awaiting their full reopening on April 26th - here are a few of our Fife favourites...
- The Cheesy Toast Shack – Located on East Sands beach in St Andrews, this little takeaway shack is a firm favourite in Fife – do yourself a favour and try their epic macaroni cheese toasty!
- The Courtyard - This popular restaurant in Cupar is currently offering a delicious takeaway evening menu that is updated weekly. We love the sound of the slow roast lamb on their Easter menu!
- The View Restaurant - Run by a husband and wife team near Wormit, The View is one of the most highly-rated eateries in the area. Currently they are offering their seasonal, modern Scottish menu on takeaway basis.
Dive into Fife’s history
While indoor museums and attractions remain closed for the time being, there is plenty of Fife’s rich history that can be experienced outdoors.
St Andrews is bursting with history. Visit the tranquil ruin of Blackfriars Chapel amid the bustle of a busy street or explore the cliffside site of the earliest collegiate church in Scotland at St Mary’s Church.
The historic village of Culross sits on the banks of the River Forth and is a fascinating place to visit. Simply walking through the ancient, cobbled streets is like stepping into the past, as it is the most complete example of a burgh of the 17th and 18th centuries.
