    You should try the fish and chips at anstruther after a walk on the beach at St Andrews.

    what about the secret bunker?
  • I think you should try Falkland a lovley wee place and if your up to it go up Falkland hill it is awsome.
    I agree with the walk and fish and chips at Anstruther and I think you should have a look at Kinghorn beach.
    As for the secret bunker its a secret so dont know what your on about.

    Obviously it depends what you like doing and whether it's adults/children etc, but here are a few ideas ( things I do regularly that don't cost a lot ):

    Walks: Any bit of the Coastal path is brilliant for a walk, especially the bits from Leven and on to the East. For something different, how about walking across the Forth Road Bridge? (There is a footpath - you are not on the road with the cars!!!) Scoonie Glen in Leven, then on to Silverburn. Dysart harbour, after a walk round Ravenscaig Park in Kirkcaldy. Falkland I would agree with. See the Palace ( National Trust so costs to get in but it is very interesting), go to Falkland Estate for a walk and you can have lunch at the Pillars of Hercules ( small organic farm shop/tearoom, excellent coffee and cakes, soup etc and though not dirt cheap it is very good value). For Fife walks I would really recommend the book "25 Walks in Fife" by Hamish Brown, clear instructions ( we have got lost a couple of times where paths have been overgrown etc but on the whole easy to follow) and lots of wee snippets of interesting information. I think there is also a similar one for cycling but having walked a lot and cycled not at all I don't feel expert enough to comment!

    Non-walking cheap things: Kirkcaldy Museum & Art gallery ( just beside the train station) well worth a look - some excellent paintings by the Scottish colourists and Jack Vettriano original paintings too. Often extra exhibitions on, and again, a nice wee cafe in the museum ( and interesting toilets! ) - and free entry. Adam Smith theatre has some good entertainment (films and shows/plays) and a few breakfast movies ( eat the cooked breakfast then go in to see the film) - reasonable price. On the theatre side and just a bit outside Fife is Dundee Rep which has excellent performances, haven't been to one of theirs yet which I haven't enjoyed and it's not as expensive for tickets as you might expect for a city theatre.

    Depends how long you are staying but you can get a weekly bus ticket which will take you all over Fife ( £17 the last time I got one which was recently, but may have been price rise between then and now). Excellent value if you want to travel a fair bit in the week, you can use any bus in Fife at any time ( you can buy it on the first bus you get on ).

    Thanx for the tips... I'll try a few. Does anyone know where to get a map of the coastal path, by the way?
