The Earthship Fife Visitor Centre is the only one of its kind in Scotland. Its a full autonomous eco building made from tyres. It keeps itself warm using thermal mass and solar gain and provides its own electricity, water supply and sewage treatment.
Earthship Fife is a must see if you are interested in environmental matters and low impact living choices. It is a friendly informal building that is fun for all the family. The Earthship is located on the North side of Kinghorn Loch with wildlife and walks and plenty space to play. The setting is as tranquil and adventurous as you like. The site links up to wider longer walks in the area. We also have a wildflower labyrinth to walk in at the Earthship doors, as well as a Mongolian yurt.
You are welcome to make a cup of tea in the Earthship or visit the on-site cafe in the nearby farmyard.
How much you want to learn about the Earthship is up to you. You are welcome to pop in and take a quick look, utilise information boards, browse the detailed information and listen to our self-guided MP3 tours on our local WiFi website, or book a guided tour provided by experienced volunteers that built the Earthship in 2002.
Because the Centre is run by volunteers it is important to check our website to check up-to-date opening times. Costs are also found there.
