Tossing coin can only happen if votes are equal. NE Fife vote was +3 Lib Dems then +2 SNP. 3rd result imminent.

Constituency Profile

The seat consists of prime farmland, popular tourist resorts and elegant market towns, including Cupar. But probably the seat’s most famous town is St Andrews. It is the so-called home of golf and is also home to Scotland’s oldest university, founded in 1410. The picturesque coastal town attracts many visitors and students from all over Britain and abroad. The relationship of two of its more famous alumini, Prince William and Kate Middleton, blossomed there.

The southern end of the Tay Road Bridge features in this constituency. It was built in 1966 and is one of the longest bridges in Europe and takes the A92 from Newport on Tay over the Firth of Tay and into the centre of Dundee.

The seat was won by Liberal Democrat Iain Smith in 1999, 2003 and 2007. Roderick Campbell won it for the SNP in the Scottish Parliament election of 2011.
