“Fife is a fantastic place to live. When people ask if I’d ever move away I always ask why would I want to? I have everything here that I need. Excellent transport links mean I can travel to where I need to go and then return home to enjoy what is on my doorstep."
Nicola Holland is the founder of FunkyEllas Travel, a Scottish Travel Blog, and is also a founding member of the Scotlanders, Scotland’s first travel blogger collaboration. Born and raised in Fife the family spent many a weekend exploring the Kingdom’s beaches, castles and parks.
"On my blog I love to show Fife off to a national and International audience. There is a buzz about Fife at the moment. The people are friendly and welcoming, the food produced here is first class and we have some of the best golf courses in the world. The filming of Outlander in our castles and the Open in St Andrews means this year Fife is in the spotlight and I’m excited by the interest tourists and businesses are showing.
I love Scotland as a whole and writing my blog, searching out the best parts, the undiscovered parts, the parts people don’t know about yet, being able to photograph the mountains, the villages and the lochs, speaking to the locals, writing stories, I love what I do. I’m also always happy to return home."
