North East Fife Area

North East Fife area is the largest of Fife’s seven areas, and stretches from the River Tay in the North, to the Firth of Forth in the south east. St Andrews is the largest town, followed by other main settlements, including Cupar, Newburgh, Auchtermuchty, Newport and Anstruther. The area is much less reliant on manufacturing and heavy industry than other areas in Fife, and is characterised by rural, agricultural and fishing industries, together with tourism in the East Neuk and St Andrews.
