Kinghorn is a small seaside resort town in Fife, Scotland looking out over the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh. Kinghorn has two beaches, Kinghorn Beach and Pettycur Bay, plus a fishing port. According to the 2008 population estimate, the town has a population of 2,930.
Known as the place where King Alexander III of Scotland died, Kinghorn lies on the A921 road and the Fife Coastal Path. The Fife Coastal Path runs through Kinghorn so there are some beautiful walks you can take in either direction along the coast.
The town’s lifeboat station is one of Scotland’s busiest – regularly getting called out to all sorts of emergencies in the Firth. Currently stationed at Kinghorn is an Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat, B-836 “Tommy Niven”.
On the beachfront you can visit the classic cafe called the “Wee Shoppe” and have ice creams, snacks, teas, coffee and of course bacon rolls.
There are some lovely old traditional cottages and houses along the seafront.
From the local golf course you can take a walk over the hill to Kinghorn Loch and on a good day you can get some wonderful views over the Firth of Forth.
There are some great walks close to Kinghorn Loch such as Rodenbraes Path (watch out for the troll under the bridge) and even up to Binnend.
An iconic building in Kinghorn is the austere looking Kinghorn Town Hall which you can now rent out for functions. It has 3 bedrooms so you can use this as a holiday stay. We used it for a family function once and it was a wonderful venue for a large party.
On Kinghorn High Street you can visit the traditional and classic Crown Tavern for some great beers and stimulating banter at the bar.
Kinghorn sits on the main Edinburgh to Aberdeen railway line so it is a great commuting town for people working in the big city of Edinburgh.
