I hope this isn't too late to be useless. Fife Tourist Board are awfully nice on the phone but seem pathologically reticent by mail. All I could get was a tourist board brochure from my local branch. Tourist board stars are from * ("fair and acceptable" to***** "World class" (didn't know we had any.) phone/fax : I think you'd leave the 0 or possibly the 01 out of the local code when you dial. Post codes (the KY1 2AB bit) generally, the lower number after the town initials, the more central it is. (EH3 is more central than EH33). Also, I'd recommend the Lonely Planet British Phrasebook, which, despite a few bloopers (every Scottish adjective seems to mean "disgusting/unpleasant/ugly") is packed with information that your granny AND your kids would want to know.
