Fife is a well known historic county based in Scotland. It used to be one of the largest kingdoms, known as Fib, and is still commonly referred to as a kingdom by locals. Fifers, the name given to residents of the county, have accumulated to become the third largest population in Scotland. The county is made up three major towns; Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline.
Fife is the home town of the patron saint of Scotland, St Andrew. In his time, he set up the University of St Andrews, one of the only remaining ancient universities in the United Kingdom.
Golf was invented within the county at town St Andrews. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club is still based there and oversees the rules of the game today. Fife provides residents with historic significance as well as an administrative centre for a strong working environment.
