About the Store/Technology:
Kirkcaldy is a coastal town with new housing developments expanding, there are excellent schools and sports facilities in the newly developed leisure centre. There is an up-and-coming café culture and shops within the retail park or High St are easily accessible. It is an easy commute via car, and Kirkcaldy train station sits on the London to Aberdeen line which makes it perfectly accessible for commuters from Edinburgh for example. If you travel slightly further north, you’ll find yourself in the Falkland hills, surrounded by countryside and stunning St Andrews coastline, so Kirkcaldy has a great deal to offer.
