SAME TOWN DIFFERENT WORLD
A former royal burgh and parish in Fife, Scotland, on the northern shore of the Firth of Forth, previously known as Wester Kinghorn or Little Kinghorn, your new home is in a thriving neighbourhood. With its beautiful award winning sandy beach, dramatic volcanic plug as a backdrop and the 15th-century Rossend Castle, the sought after coastal town of Burntisland is a wonderful place to live.
The Burntisland Links was granted by Royal Charter in 1541 to the Burgh of Burntisland by King James V of Scotland. Facilities include pitch and putt in the summer, play area all year round. The famous Burntisland highland games are held on the third Monday in July, and are Scotland’s second oldest games dating back to 1652. There are guided historical walks round the town in the summer and an annual exhibition. While the leisure centre sits right next to the beach and lovely walks along the Fife Coastal Path. The Port of Burntisland is the Forth’s most natural harbour and one of its oldest. There are great beaches at Burntisland (1m), Kinghorn (3m), Aberdour and Leven and the East Neuk is within easy driving distance. Also outdoors there are golf courses at Kinghorn (2.7m), Aberdour (3m), Dunfermline (11m), Leven, Ellie and the 7 courses near St. Andrews.
Thanks to this shopping initiative, Burntisland has a bustling high street. There is a wonderful sense of community, the locals are proud of their small independent shops and regularly use them. The shop keepers work together and share ideas.
People chat in the street and shop keepers know their customers by name. Everything you need is here. Macauley’s Fruit and Veg Merchants is a tiny shop packed full of fresh fruit and veg and there really is an impressive selection. C Sinclair sell fresh fish caught locally and have an amazing range of exciting foods to try. Tom Courts, the award winning local butchers, is run by three generations of the same family, while local bakers provide delicious fresh baked good daily.
If you are just looking for a coffee or some lunch you are spoiled for choice.
