Campaign inspires UK visitors to fall for Fife

Our latest regional marketing campaign, in partnership with Welcome to Fife, is aiming to help UK visitors fall in love with Fife this autumn and winter. 

Stunning images of Elie Ness Lighthouse, Dunfermline Abbey and the Fife Coastal Path on social media will help inspire visitors to take a short break to the region.

Aimed at visitors living in Scotland and north England, the activity hopes to show holidaymakers, and specifically retirees, why the region is the perfect place for a getaway. 

It follows new research, we commissioned alongside our counterparts in England and Wales, which suggests over 40% of retirees (44%) believe they’ve not been affected by the cost-of-living crisis and have no financial barriers to taking holidays in the UK.

More about the campaign

Famed for its breathtaking scenery and rich history, the campaign urges visitors to have the ultimate coast and city experience in Fife. It highlights landmarks such as Aberdour Castle, Abbot House, Dunfermline Abbey, Forth Bridge and Culross, as well as the region’s vibrant culinary scene including the Fife’s two Michelin-starred restaurants The Peat Inn and The Cellar.

Some of the area’s best loved experiences can be enjoyed as part of the Fife Coastal Path. The 117-mile route links the Forth and Tay estuaries and runs through towns and villages such as Limekilns, Burntisland, Elie, Crail, St Andrews and Newburgh.

Tourism is one of Fife’s most important industries. Many businesses are still recovering from the impacts of the pandemic and the current challenging economic landscape, because of that, domestic visitors continue to be a vital market for the region.

Fife is ideally placed to offer that coastal and city experience to visitors. The area has a diverse and vibrant year-round offering, and this new campaign aims to inspire visitors to stay, explore and experience it for themselves.

Partnership working is at the heart of what we do, and following a challenging period for the industry, we need to keep building on that momentum and showing visitors is a must-see destination whatever the season. Tourism is an important part of the local economy, creating jobs and sustaining communities.
