Local and international visitors continue to flock to the Kingdom of Fife as the Fife Five tourism video campaign goes live in partnership with VisitScotland and Fife Council.
A series of short videos which showcase Fife's beautiful scenery and attractions have launched to continue enticing strong visitor numbers to Fife. The theme of 'Fife Five' lists popular activities and sites to visit in the Kingdom, with added bonus content of upcoming events including the Ricoh Women's Open Golf Championship in August.
According to The Moffat Centre's most recent research, there are around three million visitors to Fife each year, bringing almost £439 million into the Kingdom's economy.
Fife's stunning landscape was the most cited attraction for visiting the region according to Visit Scotland's most recent Visitor Survey, with the Kingdom also being voted top Outdoor Destination for eight consecutive years.
The Kingdom's world-famous golf courses, delicious cuisine and stunning coastlines are among the top activities and sites to visit in the Kingdom. The video showcases include:
