Fife Group

Fife is one of Scotland’s 32 unitary council areas. It lies between the Firth of Tay and the Firth of Forth, and borders Perth and Kinross and Clackmannanshire.

Prior to 1996, the area was governed under a two-tier system, with a local government region divided into three districts – Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and North-East Fife.

Fife is Scotland's third largest local authority area by population. Almost a third of the population live in the three principal towns of Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes.
