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.
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.
