Kirkcaldy is a coastal location with new housing developments expanding in the town. There are excellent schools and sports facilities in the newly developed leisure centre. There is an up and coming café culture and shops in the retail park and High St are easily accessible. It is an easy commute from Edinburgh with regular trains and motorway driving. Yet going slightly further north, you are able to walk in the Falkland hills and be surrounded by countryside and the stunning St Andrews coastline, so Kirkcaldy has a great deal to offer.
