Levenmouth’s Local Tourist Association has launched a new free visitor guide and rebranded the area as Fife’s Energy Coast in honour of its clean energy credentials and the energising nature of the activities on offer in the 20 kilometre stretch of coastline.
The new guide has been designed to showcase the natural beauty, attractions, activities and sights the area has to offer in a bid to boost tourism to area, shining the spotlight on popular destinations along the coast as well as some of its hidden gems.
Chair of the Levenmouth Tourist Association, Christopher Trotter comments: “Fife’s Energy Coast stretches from the Wemyss conservation villages, famous for their caves and pottery, to the spectacular sea vistas of Largo Bay where the real Robinson Crusoe first felt sand between his toes. From east to west the light constantly changes offering stunning sunrises to golden sunsets, the Forth provides a vast backdrop for the ever shifting light”.
“The area has a wonderful industrial heritage and is now a world-leading centre for renewable energy, with sprawling coastlines and plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventures, there is something for everyone to enjoy in nature’s playground”.
Featuring a foreword from David Mach the celebrated sculptor and installation artist from Fife, the guide features lots of things to see and do, from family days out to attractions, events and festivals. It also offers top travel tips and links to accommodation in the area for those who wish to indulge in a longer stay. With sections dedicated to heritage, sports and the outdoors there is something to appeal to all ages and all interests and for foodies there are also recommendations for food from Fife.
Councillor David Alexander Co-leader of Fife Council and member of Levenmouth Tourist Association added: “We want to encourage people to enjoy all that Fife’s Energy Coast has to offer, from spending a day at our amazing golf facilities to a casual stroll around our historical towns and villages, there is so much to experience all year round.
“Fife’s Energy Coast boasts some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland. The visitor guide was designed to highlight some of these fantastic features and provide inspiration so that people from both near and far can appreciate what the area has to offer. With Edinburgh across the water to the south and St Andrews just to the north, Fife’s Energy Coast is ideally located to explore the beautiful coastlines, rich heritage, family-friendly attractions and wide open countryside of the Kingdom of Fife”.
Featuring an overview of attractions in areas such as Leven, Buckhaven, Methil, Kennoway & Windygates, Largo, Lundin Links and Wemyss the visitors guide contains everything you need to know to tailor a trip around your favourite pastimes and explore Fife’s Energy Coast.
