Kinghorn is a small coastal town in Fife on the north shore of the Firth of Forth, between Kirkcaldy and Burntisland. Kinghorn became a royal burgh by 1170, making it one of the earliest in Fife. Kinghorn once prospered as a ferry port. The old harbour was the main port for the Broad Ferry until 1760. The harbour is now dominated by the railway viaduct of 1847. Kinghorn is now a seaside resort, with Holiday Park, beautiful beaches, golf course, a variety of shops and amenities, Public Library and Community Centre. Historical buildings include the Church Hall, Bow Butts House with its unusual 18th century Doocot. The Parish Church built in1774 with its bell-tower added in 1894. At the foot of North Overgate stands the Town House and remains of the prison block built1826. Kinghorn has two beaches, Kinghorn Beach and Pettycur Bay. The cliffs to the west of Pettycur witnessed the tragic death of Alexander III. On a stormy night in 1286 he accidentally rode his horse off the cliff plunging to his death. A granite statue of King and horse was erected here as a monument to the king. Pettycur Bay Holiday Park is a busy family holiday centre, with luxury caravans and lively entertainment.
