Fife is top outdoor destination for sixth year in a row

Thursday, October 25, 2012
Fife is still Scotland’s most popular outdoor destination, hitting the top spot for the sixth year in a row.
Scottish Natural Heritage has revealed that the Kingdom’s rural and coastal areas continue to be the most visited in Scotland – a record Fife has proudly held since 2006.
The Scottish Recreation Survey: Annual summary report 2011 confirms that Fife received nearly 40 million visits last year. Fife’s estimated average of 31.6 million visits each year since 2004 is nearly 10 million more than either the City of Edinburgh or Highland, and around 100 times the Kingdom’s population!
About 90% of Fifers make outdoor visits within their home Kingdom, with over half making a trip at least once a week – a testament to the quality of and accessibility to the coast and countryside.
The Fife Coastal Path, for example, is the most popular and longest continuous route of its kind in Scotland and offers locals and visitors a unique tour of Fife’s history and biodiversity. Dining and shopping outlets along the Path also help generate millions of pounds each year for the local economy.
“It is wonderful to see Fife as the most popular outdoor destination in Scotland for the sixth year in a row,” said Simon Phillips, Business Manager at Fife Coast and Countryside Trust – the region’s leading environmental charity responsible for managing and conserving Fife’s countryside.
“The Kingdom has a superb range of coastal and countryside sites, including woodlands, beaches, parks, Local Nature Reserves, the Lomond Hills, and the Fife Coastal Path. We are delighted to see our hard work really paying off and making a difference to the lives of people throughout Fife and beyond.
“We are very fortunate to have a number of organisations working throughout the Kingdom to ensure that Fife’s countryside can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come. Fife Coast and Countryside Trust are very proud to be part of that work”
Katherine Leys, Scottish Natural Heritage's Operations Manager for Fife added "we undertake the Scottish Recreation Survey every year to see how people are using and enjoying the countryside. Fife has done really well once again, which confirms what those of us living in Fife already know -it is a great place to live and enjoy"
Alison Irvine, Senior Access Officer with Fife Council said “We are really proud that Fife is once again in the top spot in this survey. The Council are currently working to sign post and open up the 1500km of adopted core paths in the area which will add even further to the great opportunities for outdoor access in Fife.”
