Travel Tips for Kirkcaldy

the blues

by iaint

No, not BB King or Etta James; local rugby team.

Play in Scottish 3rd division - not great standard, but OK. They were in division 1 a couple of years back, but couldn't keep the good players together...

Great to get outside for 90 minutes in January, lots of fresh air. Even occasional mild excitement!

UPDATE (May 09)

Blues just won their league & promoted to Div 2!. Back in the big time... As much warm clothing as you can lay your hands on.
Money for beer before, at half time, and at end.

Craigencalt Ecology Centre

by iaint

This is becoming a bit of a local institution. It is located a few miles along the coast, west of Kirkcaldy.

The setting is wonderful - see photos.

The range of activities is too wide to detail here - have a look at their website. I'm a member, and recently "acquired" a garden plot 8m x 8m to grow veggies.

The full address (for your satnav - or whatever) is Craigencalt Farm, Kinghorn KY3 9YG

The lang toun

by iaint

"Home town?"

I've lived here for 10 years now, and it better than the locals say!

5 minutes to the sea shore, 5 minutes to the countryside, 30 minutes to little fishing villages and quiet beaches, 30 minutes to Edinburgh.

"what to know..."

First, it's in Fife (Scotland) just north of Edinburgh. In fact you can see Edinburgh just across the waters of the Firth of Forth.

Second, it's a commercial town, not really a tourist orientated destination, although it is worth a visit.

It's the birth place and home town of the economist Adam Smith.

Coincidentally, it's the birthplace of current UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. He's also the town's representative in the UK Parliament.

"close by..."

You have Falkland Palace only 15 minutes away - a former royal palace. Small, so you only need half a day to get round. Definitely worth the trip.

St Andrews is only 45 minutes drive, to see the home of golf and an ancient university town. Love it.

Editor's note:-
Several of the tips are for places which are not in Kirkcaldy. It's more of a Fife page than a Kirkcaldy one, as I'm not wanting to start a homepage for each town or village with a restaurant I can recommend! Anyway, I live here so it's the centre of the universe!
