The former Royal burgh of Kirkcaldy is a large town on the east coast of Scotland, in the Kingdom of Fife. It's fondly known as the 'lang toon' due to its almost 1 mile water front in the 14th century, although it is almost 4 miles long now. The town is a good base for those wanting to travel around Scotland, it is close to Edinburgh and Glasgow, is in a beautiful region and should have everything you need in terms of hotels, restaurants, shops and entertainment. There are also many things to do in Kirkcaldy to keep all ages happy.
A wee bit of history
Kirkcaldy is probably most well known for being the birthplace of Scottish economist and philosopher Adam Smith who wrote the 1766 book 'The Wealth of Nations'. There was also a strange whiff from the Nairns Linoleum factory that gained quite the reputation, there was even a poem written about it which is displayed on the wall in the train station. Kirkcaldy has a long industrial past, with only a few of the factories still remaining. Linen, Linoleum, Salt, nails and coal were all produced here with the harbour being an important point to export and import goods.
