Sister cities of Fife
Fife ([ˈfəif]; Scottish Gaelic: Fìobha) is an historic county in the Scottish Lowlands and also a council area of Scotland.
The county is a lieutenancy area. It was very occasionally known by the anglicisation Fifeshire in old documents and maps compiled by English cartographers and authors.
It is situated between the Firth of Tay and the Firth of Forth, with inland boundaries to Perth and Kinross and Clackmannanshire. Bounded to the north by the Firth of Tay and to the south by the Firth of Forth, it is a natural peninsula whose political boundaries have changed little over the ages.
Kirkcaldy is Fife's largest town by population (48,108 in 2006), followed by Dunfermline (45,462 in 2006) and then Glenrothes (38,927 in 2006).
The historic town of St Andrews is located on the northeast coast of Fife. It is well known for the University of St Andrews, one of the most ancient universities in the world and is renowned as the home of golf.
A person from Fife is known as a Fifer.
