There's soooo much on offer!

The Royal Burgh of Burntisland owes its existence to a natural harbour, probably used originally in prehistoric times.  It is claimed that the invading Romans, under Agricola, landed here and established it as a naval base around AD85.  In the 12th century the Castle of Rossend was built as the residence of the Abbots of Dunfermline.  St Columba's Church, built in 1594, is the oldest post-Reformation kirk still in regular use and both historically and architecturally is something all visitors should see.  In the local library, which was gifted in 1906 by Andrew Carnegie, there is a small display of the town's history.  In many parts of Fife there are hills which are the remnants of volcanic plugs and one such hill, just inland from the town, is 'The Binn'.  Walk to the top you will have excellent views over to Edinburgh and up to the Bridges.

Burntisland itself offers a wide range of local attactions but also serves as a perfect base for exploring the beautiful towns and fishing villages along the Fife coast, to the north, and is only 30 minutes from the historic city of Edinburgh, to the south.
