New build homes Fife

Fife is a historic county located in the East of Scotland, bordered by the Firth of Tay to the North and the Firth of Forth to the South. It is in an enviable position between the cities of Edinburgh and Dundee – ideal for commuters – with the North Sea on its eastern edge.  

Choosing a new build home in Fife gives you the longest continuous coastal path in Scotland on your doorstep. Whether you choose a new house in one of the bustling towns or one of the pretty seaside villages, Fife’s stunning coastline will be on hand for lounging on the beach, leisurely strolls along the shore or thrilling water sports like surfing and sailing.

Aside from the natural beauty, Fife is also home to a wealth of historic landmarks and cultural attractions. From the ancient ruins of St Andrews Cathedral to the grandeur of Falkland Palace, history buffs will delight in exploring the county’s rich heritage. And with charming market towns like St Andrews and Dunfermline offering an array of shops, restaurants and cultural events, there’s always an event or festival close to home.

If you’re a golfer, you’re in luck – Fife has over 50 golf courses, including the world-renowned Old Course at St Andrews. Walkers will be drawn to trails in the ancient woodlands of Tentsmuir Forest, the parkland of Falkland Palace or the 117 miles of coastal paths. Cyclists can also explore the Fife Coastal Path or head to trails in Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline or the spectacular Lomond Hills Regional Park.

Your new property in Fife is well-connected to Edinburgh by road. The M90 motorway runs through the region, providing a direct route to the Capital. Commuters can also take advantage of the Forth Road Bridge or the Queensferry Crossing to cross the Firth of Forth and reach Edinburgh by car or bus.
