Kinghorn History
A former ferry port in Fife, Kinghorn is situated on the north shore of the Firth of Forth between Burntisland and Kirkcaldy. Created a royal burgh in 1170, Kinghorn's former castle was frequently visited by the Scottish Court, the town's name being included in the title of the earldom of Strathmore and Kinghorne and the offices of Constable of Kinghorn and Keeper of the King's Door.

During the Middle Ages the town had a hospice for the poor. In addition to its ferry link with the Lothians, Kinghorn developed into a thriving centre of spinning and shipbuilding and is today a popular holiday resort.

There are many attractive 18th-century pan tiled houses, the 17th-century Cuinzie Neuk, a railway viaduct built in 1847 and Kinghorn Parish Church (1774) with a Sailors' Aisle from an earlier church.

To the west of Kinghorn a roadside cross erected in 1886 commemorates Alexander III, the last of Scotland's Celtic kings, who fell to his death from the cliff top here in March 1286. Kinghorn Loch lies just inland for Kinghorn itself offering canoeing, sailing and fishing.

Kinghorn has its own 18 hole course within walking distance from the property and the Royal & Ancient St. Andrews Course is only short distance up the coast. There are a further twenty plus 18 hole courses to choose from in the surrounding areas.

One of the main attractions in Kinghorn is the award winning Pettycur beach, 2 minutes walk away from the property, past Pettycur harbour where local fishermen bring in their seasonal catch.

Other sports
Golfing, snorkeling, fishing, bird watching, canoeing and sailing are all common activities all along the Fife coast. Pettycur Bay itself is one of the best places in Scotland to Kite Surf and it is also popular with wind surfers.

At low tide the beach is over 3 miles long and makes a fantastic walk. You can also walk or cycle the well sign posted Fife coastal path route, plan short or long routes along the coastal path to the Forth bridges or right round the coast to St. Andrews and beyond.

Places of interest
Other attractions include the Ecology centre, various boat trips to the islands or to go fishing, Ravenscraig castle, Aberdour castle, Beveridge Park, and the Adam Smith theatre all of which are nearby. Weekend and evening entertainment at the Bay holiday complex located 10 min's walk from the property.

The fishing villages along the coast of Fife are known locally as the East Neuk and are well worth a visit. Pittenweem holds its own Art Festival in August and there are highland games held in several locations in
Fife throughout the summer.

Local towns
Within the village of Kinghorn there are two small supermarkets, butchers, bakers, a chemist, 5 pubs which serve food and several food takeaways from Chinese to fish and chips. The neighbouring towns of Burntisland and Kirkcaldy have public swimming pools; there is also an ice rink and impressive Art Gallery in Kirkcaldy.

Aberdour which is 6 miles away nestles around Aberdour's two beaches and the natural harbour formed by the Dour Burn (burn - small stream), Aberdour actually means "River Mouth of the Dour".

For such a small village Aberdour has much to offer, there are the two beaches, one a European Union "Blue Flag Award" winner, Aberdour castle, built in the 13th Century, Saint Fillans, the 12th century village church, hotels, bed and breakfasts, convenience stores, restaurants, gift stores and much more.

Burntisland is 3 miles away and is well known to generations of day trippers, who return time and again to enjoy the beach, the Links and the annual summer fairground.

You also have the option to leave the car and take a train ride from Kinghorn Station across the famous Forth Bridge into Edinburgh to visit the many historic sights including Edinburgh castle, Sir Walter Scott's monument, the Museum of Scotland and the new Scottish parliament building. Alternatively you can browse around the trendy shops and cafe bars on and around Princess Street.

In August there is also the famous Edinburgh festival to enjoy, a winter festival over Christmas and the famous new year Hogmanay celebrations. The journey takes around 40 minutes.
