Fife is not exactly hill country. However, it does have a number of fine smaller hills which make excellent viewpoints of the surrounding low lying countryside.

Only nine of the Fife hills are higher than 300m, with a further 5 listed as being between 250m and 300m. Perhaps of more interest given the flatness of the Fife countryside is a hill’s prominence i.e. the minimum drop between it and neighbouring hills. In this respect Fife boasts seven Marilyns (hills with 150m prominence), seven further Humps (hills with 100m prominence, and a further 98 Tumps (hills with 30m prominence).

The list here here includes all mainland hills that are listed on the Database of British and Irish Hills along with selected other hills. Whilst many of the hills make for good walks for casual walkers, some of the lesser known ones are likely to appeal primarily to the hill bagger / enthusiast as access may not be straightforward. Ensure you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code as some of these summits are located in working countryside.
