You tend not to hear too many kind words said about Fife when you live in Falkirk but it's a cracking part of the country.

Nice! You probably have more heritage here than me then. My family came over from Ireland at the tail end of the 19th century. If you can find out about your family I'd recommend a visit. There are countless historical buildings and towns here that it would blow your mind if you found out you were walking in the footsteps of a distant relative.
