Rail

There are 19 train stations in Fife both on the local and national network. You’ll be able to hop on and off throughout Fife, visiting towns, the countryside and the coast as you choose. Several stations link Fife with Aberdeen, Perth and Inverness to the north, Glasgow to the west and Edinburgh and London to the south.

The 19 stations in Fife are managed by ScotRail, who operate 95% of the passenger train services in Scotland.

The railway network is currently undergoing investment to improve reliability and a better overall journey experience. Trains and stations are being refurbished and planned enhancements include waiting rooms and upgraded lighting.

The network in Fife comprises railway lines from Edinburgh travelling north to Dundee and Aberdeen or Perth and Inverness, with the ScotRail line looping to connect towns in Fife.

More than ten towns in Fife are just minutes from each other on the Fife Circle Line, meaning travelling from one town to another is simple.

The East Coast and CrossCountry lines link Fife with Aberdeen, Perth and Inverness to the north, Edinburgh (from there to Glasgow and the west) and London to the south. From Edinburgh, passengers can also join the First TransPennnine Express and Virgin Trains routes.

The majority of stations are step-free and have accessible ticket machines, and all trains carry portable ramps. Find out more information on the ScotRail website.
