Visit Kinghorn and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Kinghorn, Fife. Kinghorn faces South and has become a holiday resort on the Firth of Forth; it has a fine, safe beach.
The town had a royal castle in the early 13th century, but this was granted by Robert II to his son-in-law Sir John Lyon, ancestor of the Strathmore family; Sir John called it Glamis Tower. Formerly Kinghorn was the North end of a ferry across the Forth.
At Pettycur to the South West of the burgh is a monument put up in 1886 to mark the spot where Alexander III was killed by a fall from his horse in 1286.
Carlin Craig at the West end of the bay has interesting specimens of wild plant life.
