Fife is full of towns and villages which offer a lot more than you'd first think, and we Kirkcaldy (pronounced "kirk-caw-day”) is a prime example of this. If you're willing to explore the nooks and crannies of this town, you'll find charm and beauty which will no doubt delight and surprise you. We wanted to highlight the best things to see and do in Kirkcaldy for 2023 after a visit there recently, let's get into the guide:
Where is Kirkcaldy?
Firstly, let's establish where Kirkcaldy is. The town is in Fife, around 18 miles from the city of Dunfermline and to the south of St Andrews and Crail. It's about a 50-minute drive from Edinburgh to Kirkcaldy (the bridge can slow things down), and is well-connected to other towns in East Scotland via the train station. The Stagecoach bus service is reliable and a great way to reach the town is to take the bus, even from Edinburgh (plus, you'll save some money as the bus tickets are cheaper!).
