Things to do

If you're planning a day out in Fife, Kirkcaldy is well worth a visit, and the town centre is a great place to start!

Take a wander through history, including the Merchant's Quarter which is now home to lots of lovely independent shops and businesses. You can also walk in the foosteps of one of the town's most famous sons, Adam Smith who was an economist and philosopher, known as the Father of Economics.

If you're in town on a Friday don't miss the Artisan Market on the High Street for great local produce, street food and more.

Kirkcaldy is situated right on the coast too so you can stroll along the Waterfront and take in the views. It's also part of the Fife Coastal Path and home to the famous Links Market every spring.

When you need to stop for a break there are plenty of delicious places to eat and drink, offering everything from cupcakes to cocktails. 

If you are interested in art then Kirkcaldy Galleries is a must visit. With an outstanding collection of Scottish Art, a visit to Kirkcaldy Galleries is well worth a trip! Highlights of the collection include nationally important works by William McTaggart, Scottish Colourist, S.J. Peploe and local artist Jack Vettriano - don't miss the much anticipated exhibition of his early work this summer.

Kirkcaldy is easy to get to too. It's on the main east coast rail line and there is a good bus service to Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
