Retirement homes in Fife

With sandy beaches, historic buildings and countless miles of peaceful landscape, buying a retirement home in Fife is the perfect way to start a new adventure in the Scottish countryside.

Explore a county with a rich history to uncover

From towering cathedrals to ancient ruins, Fife's a county that's steeped with history and heritage.

You can learn about the Wars of Scottish Independence at the 13th-century St. Andrew's Castle, see the world's oldest in-use tennis court at Falkland Palace, or go a hundred feet underground into the secret nuclear bunker at Troywood.

You'll find historic equipment and sporting memorabilia at the British Golf Museum in St. Andrew's, two centuries of local social history at the Fife Folk Museum in Ceres, and nearly 200 classic vehicles spanning the entire 20th century at the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum near Dunfermline.

Retire to a part of Scotland that's packed with natural beauty

With award-winning parks, picturesque beaches and a huge range of diverse wildlife to see, it's no wonder that so many people are choosing a coastal retirement home in Fife.

You can explore two miles of uninterrupted sand and clear waters at the Blue Flag-winning West Sands Beach, wander through 50 square miles of woodland and nature reserve at Tentsmuir Forest, or hike to the top of West Lomond, the highest point in the county, with views of the Southern Highlands and the Grampian Mountains.

You'll find deer, bears and wolves at the Scottish Deer Centre in Cupar, puffins and seals on the Isle of May, and a wide range of underwater animals at the Deep Sea World aquarium in North Queensferry.
