Fancy a wee dauner by the harbour?

Seagull - can you help me? How do you catch they chip things and get the crispy batter on the fish?

There’s nothing like a dauner* roon a harbour, to enjoy the sea air.  Watch the fishing boats, and maybe even pick up some locally caught sea food direct from the fisherman.  Or admire the yachts and touring boats passing through on their journeys. 

And of course have a legendary Fife fish supper as you go – the seagulls have been missing those during lockdown!

Or you can take a trip with Forth Boat Tours to see the beautiful Fife coast, the stunning three bridges from the water or Blackness Castle (which features in Outlander) from the Forth estuary.

There are plenty to choose from wherever you are in Fife – including St Andrews, Pittenweem, Crail, North Queensferry, Tayport, Aberdour and many more.

Dauner – a stroll or relaxing walk, as in “where ur ye off tae?” – “Och, naewhwere.  A’m just off fur a wee dauner tae get some fresh air”.  Translation:  “I see you are going out. Where is your chosen destination? – “Actually I have no specific destination for my outing.  I have decided to go for a relaxing walk to take in some fabulous harbour views and fresh Fife air.”
