Kirkcaldy in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... which is called Links Street. This street is not the best, as most of the dole kids are housed here and it is known as a hard to let area. I haven't had any trouble on here though. So how big is Kirkcaldy? Well i'm not the best person to know about these things. I would say the town is about 6 miles wide and probably 6 miles deep. There is a new large houseing estate being built up the top of the town, so that will probably add another 2 miles onto it. The next small town next to Kirkcaldy is called Dysart and this often gets counted as part of Kirkcaldy, but I never count it as that, because if it was then it wouldn't have a different n... more

Kirkcaldy is the town that I live in. For all my life I lived in the large village next to Kirkcaldy, which is called Kinghorn, perhaps if Dooyoo adds Kinghorn then I can then write about there. It's always hard I think to write about the place that you stay, as you don't really see it as a tourist, you tend to focus on the bad parts or the not much to do parts. I will do my best though. So, anything famous or special about Kirkcaldy? This is the home town of Gordon Brown. In fact he was in my mother in laws class at school. This town was very famous in the past for Linolium. I got told that the town stank of the stench of it, but those days are ... Read the complete review

Kirkcaldy, know as 'the lang toun' is a large town in central Fife. The town is very old and has a rich history being built up around the once busy harbour. In later years, the town was a hive of industry and at one point produced most of the world's linoleum in it's many factories. The town suffered decline as these factories began to close their doors (although some lino is still made in here) but is still a very busy and popular town. Kirkcaldy is also the birthplace of the famous 18th century economist, Adam Smith. The town these days has a lot to offer both residents and visitors alike. Kirkcaldy boasts two shopping centres and a bustling high street, ... Read the complete review

this review isnt actually about kirkcaldy in general but rather about europes longest travelling fair which sets up once a year along kirkcaldys prom! Although many of you will never have heard of it this travelling fair is world famous for many reasons not least the fact that it is still to this day the Europe’s longest travelling fairground. The giant Lorries carrying these fairground rides roll into Kirkcaldy at the same time every year and they have been since it started as a weekly market for traders, farmers, craftsmen and the like. In 1305. The market opens each year on the closest Wednesday to the 14th of April and stays open till the following Monday ... Read the complete review

Despite what you may believe from reading some of the reviews in the Fife section, St Andrews isn’t the biggest town here. No, it’s not even the best! That honour is reserved for Kirkcaldy. Pronounced Kirk-Coddy (NOT Kirk-Cal-Day, please!!) Kirkcaldy is the largest town in Fife (although that is very heavily disputed by anyone from Dunfermline, Glenrothes, St Andrews, Leven, Lundin Links, Aberdour, Methil…!) and is, as you may have guessed, my home. Although I was born in Glasgow (please don’t tell anyone!) I was brought here as a toddler and I consider myself to be a Fifer. Known as the Lang Toun, for it’s long shape on ...
