Retire to Fife

St. Andrew's Castle, Fife


From towering cathedrals to medieval castles, Fife is a county that's steeped with history and heritage. You can learn about the Wars of Scottish Independence at St Andrews 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.

In addition, you'll find historic equipment and sporting memorabilia at the British Golf Museum in St Andrews, 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.

"We’ve already made some lovely friends here, and we are really enjoying life. There’s always something going on – we’ve had some great fish and chip supper nights in the homeowners’ lounge. I also love bird watching from the sun terrace and Joyce often joins me out there to read and enjoy the stunning views across the Firth of Forth.”
