Towns & Villages

    Burntisland is a coastal resort on the Firth of Forth.

    Located just over 10 miles from Dunfermline and 6 miles from Kirkcaldy, the town of Burntisland is home to a beautiful sandy beach that is one of only five beaches in Scotland awarded the sought after Blue Flag status. Perfect for relaxing, walking and families, there are plenty of rock pools to explore and the experience is enhanced by a modern leisure centre, seaside park and crazy golf course.

    Along the high street you’ll find a number of takeaway establishments, cafés, pubs and shops including a bakers, butchers, chemist and post office.

    Burntisland is an excellent destination for families, offering plenty of history and exciting places to visit close.  Explore the 12th century Rossend Castle, the 16th century Mary Somerville's House (named after the pioneer of women's education who lived there in the late 18th century) and the octagonal towered Parish Church, reputedly the first new Post-Reformation church in Scotland. During the summer months, the local Heritage Trust holds annual exhibitions and guided walks through the town.

    Annual events in Burntisland include a fair, highland games, the crowning of the Summer Queen on the Links and the Civic Week parade. There is also a highly rated 18 hole golf course and a popular bowling green.
