Located in central Fife and embraced by the Lomond Hills Regional Park, Glenrothes offers many hotels for your Scottish holiday. Constructed post-war as a mining community, Glenrothes has had many identities through the last half-century, making it a historian's dream destination.
For enthusiasts of prehistory, the area is home to the remnants of a stone circle ‘henge', akin to its more well-known English cousin, Stonehenge. Previously the site of many Neolithic items, excavations throughout recent years have continued to unearth prehistoric paraphernalia.
Noted for the multitude of parks and appropriately decorated with awards such as ‘Britain in Bloom’ and ‘Beautiful Scotland,’ a day of escapism with the family is always on the cards here. If getting back to nature is required, Glenrothes serves as the perfect platform to the rugged Scottish wilderness. Check into a bed and breakfast hotel in the area for a really intimate experience.
