As Fife’s tourist industry gears up for a busy Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, VisitScotland looks back at an “innovative” 2016.
Regional director for Fife, Manuela Calchini, said: “They say you have to look to the past to understand the present.
“Next year we celebrate Scotland’s fascinating history and Fife will play its part, including a wonderful opportunity to commemorate the Forth Bridge, one of Scotland’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as we look forward to the opening of the new Queensferry Crossing.
“The spiritual home of whisky will once again thrive in Fife, with Lindores Abbey Distillery, whose grounds contained the earliest written evidence of whisky distillation in Scotland, due to open in 2017.
“But looking to the past – 12 months, that is – it has been another fantastic year in Fife.”
