10 things to do with the kids this Summer

Your school holiday survival guide

There's loads to see and do in Fife, so plenty of options to keep the kids entertained throughout the holidays! Here's some fair and wet weather options to choose from...well, we are in Scotland!

  1. For something different, head to Cluny Activities and try out the footgolf – the fastest growing sport in the UK!  There’s also a play area, driving range, archery, segways and a lovely café.
  2. Why not take the kids berry picking? There are loads of great places in Fife including Cairnie Mega Maze and Fruit Farm and Blacketyside Farm, where the kids can also play, as well as Pittormie Fruit Farm.
  3. For a bit of culture, head to award-winning visitor attraction in Scotland's ancient capital – Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries – and it’s free.
  4. Take a boat trip to either the Isle of May or Inchcolm Island. Both offer a fantastic day out and kids will love spotting the seals and wildlife, including the very cute pufflings on the May!! 
  5. Lots to keep the kids amused in St Andrews – visit the castle and explore the bottle dungeon, climb St Rule’s Tower, stop off at the museum or go putting on the Himalayas! Even better kids go free to all Historic Scotland sites during the summer. If you need to cool off, visit Jannettas Gelateria.and choose from over 100 flavours!
  6. Roome Bay Crail was once voted one of the best places in the UK for rock pooling! So, pick up a net and see what you can catch!
  7. Young kids and teenagers will love a visit to the shows at Burntisland for all the fun of the fair! The fairground is there all summer from 5th July. There’s also a gorgeous sandy beach to enjoy if the sun’s out. Burnisland is on the 'In the Footsteps of Kings' App trail. You'll find the activation panel at the prom for some augmented reality fun. List of trail locations can be found here. Another top tip...don't miss Novelli's for a yummy ice-cream!
  8. Did you know Fife has the highest number of national attractions? Why not pay a visit to one or more of them. These include Deep Sea World, Knockhill Racing Circuit, Scottish Vintage Bus Museum, Scottish Deer Centre and the Scottish Fisheries Museum.
  9. Tentsmuir is always a favourite where the kids will love exploring the sand dunes, spotting seals and wildlife. Pack a picnic (there’s also a great bbq area) or enjoy lunch from the yummy Salt and Pine.
  10. For a wee bit of history, visit Dunfermline Abbey, burial place of King Robert the Bruce? Then spend a fun afternoon in Pittencrieff Park, or ‘The Glen’ as it’s commonly known by locals.

This is just a starter for 10. For more inspiration, visit What’s On and Things to Do and Go Fife.
