South of Dundee on the other side of the Tay Estuary Fife is probably one of the most prolific agate-producing areas in Scotland. Within a triangular area bounded approximately by lines drawn between Newburgh, Cupar and Tayport is found probably the greatest concentration of separate sites within Scotland.
The range of stone types found within this area is unparalleled.
The agate localities in Fife include the beaches, ploughed fields and some, mainly small, quarries. Colors range from the intricate blue and white fortification agates from near Norman's Laws, the green moss agates from Scurr Hill near Balmerino to the exquisitely red, yellow and white small stones from Middlefield Farm near Cupar,
