Having grown up in Scotland Jackie knows many of its lesser known little hidden gems for guests to discover and enjoys introducing and arranging for trips either touring or visiting Scotland’s famous attractions.
There are a wide and varied selection of tourist information leaflets, flyers and reference books available for guests at Lillian May.
WALKING, NATURE & THE GREAT OUTDOORS ….….
Lillian May B&B is situated on the Fife Coastal Route stretching from Queensferry to Newburgh passing through many beautiful East Fife coastal villages.
A favourite with both the Munro climber or serious rambler wanting to complete the full 79 miles over 6 days, or the photographer or nature lover wanting to walk a small part to enjoy the fresh Scottish air with caves home to prehistoric paintings, cliff top paths, staggering views out to sea and grey seals basking on the rocks. Or simply visit one of the many tea rooms in the villages.
For the cyclist Fife has over 300 miles of cyclist paths.
Scotland has an abundance of places to go and get close up with wildlife. Boat trips to the protected ISLE of MAY run through the summer months.
Newport-on-Tay has it’s own resident boat company where passengers can enjoy a trip on the Terra Nova up the River Tay to see its many sights including the stunning Elcho Castle, Rhynd and the Scottish Highlands. On a good day you may see the Dolphins.
