Kirkcaldy

... welcomes you to The Kingdom of Fife, Scotland. Enjoy your visit.

The Fife Coastal Path, Kingdom of Fife Web Site, Scotland After Kinghorn, you will reach the larger town of Kirkcaldy, the ‘Lang Toun’. Over the years Kirkcaldy has had a mixed economic base. It is a market town with a working harbour. However there is also a history of pottery and mining. Still one of the main employers is ‘Nairns’, the only remaining Linoleum factory in Britain. Kirkcaldy has the usual mix of facilities - theatre, cinema, swimming pool, parks, museums and shopping centre.

Barrhead is a village in the East Renfrewshire region of The Clyde Valley.

Barrhead Community Museum depicts the history of Barrhead across all eras, and contains numerous local artefacts of interest.

For the historian, you can visit Ravenscraig Castle which dates from 1460. For the economic and politically minded, Kirkcaldy is the birth place of Adam Smith (1723-1790) and for the more active, there is indoor Karting and Iceskating.

My personal favourite event of the year is the Links Market, reputed to be the longest street fair in Britain, the market takes over the Esplanade for three days a year and is the best place for candy-floss, hot-dogs and every fair-ground ride imaginable.
