These pages cover a range of important groups and activities in Kinghorn; from the Pathways group and the Loch Users group to the much-loved inshore Lifeboat events.  Craigencalt Rural Community Trust incorporates both the Loch Users and Kinghorn Pathways, together with the Walking Group and Bird Watching interests.  Also the opening a few years ago of the renovated Town Hall, which lay empty for twenty years.  We are also developing a Writers Corner for local writers and poets and a horticultural bent will be coming soon.

There is also information on the clean and attractive beaches on this page, and help if you are struggling with debt or other problems.

Robbie Blyth, Coastal Officer for Fife Council has succeeded in achieving the  Keep Scotland Beautiful Rural Beach Award for both the Kinghorn Harbour Beach (the village beach) and Pettycur Beach.  We owe thanks to the Harbour Residents Environmental Group for their work over the years on the village beach.  

The difficulties with cutting back and tidying up The Braes overlooking the beach remains a problem and often attracts comment at meetings.  There will be an answer somewhere and hopefully we will find it soon.

All of Kinghorn’s beaches get Rural Award status
