Kinghorn

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

The Fife Coastal Path, The Kingdom of Fife Web Site, Scotland A little further along the coast is Kinghorn, created as a Royal Burgh in the 12th century. Approaching Kinghorn from Burntisland you will pass the monument of King Alexander 3rd, who fell from the cliffs to his death in 1286. This event changed Scottish history and plunged Scotland into decades of war and political unrest.

In Kinghorn you will pass Pettycur Pier, built in 1760 to ferry traffic from Leith, Edinburgh. The parish church situated in the Nethergate and built in 1774 on the site of Saxon churches dating from the 13th century is also worth a visit. The south aisle of this building was at one time used by local seamen for both services and gatherings and a 1567 ship model "The Unicorn" still hangs from the ceiling.
