Doors Open Day in Fife for Next Three Weekends (Burntisland 8th)

It’s now the 30th year of this great scheme which covers the whole of Scotland.

Only two buildings are listed as open in Burntisland this year (Sunday only) – the Heritage Centre (from here you can also visit the Burgh Chambers) and Parish Church – but plenty more in Central Fife and Kirkcaldy.

Also, nearby, Earthship Fife Visitor Centre At Kinghorn Loch.

In addition on the 8th, and 7th, 6 artists’ studios are open.

“Burntisland, Fife – a town that’s getting it right”

“Burntisland is a small town on the coast of Fife, in between Kinghorn and Aberdour, and it’s a town that’s doing something pretty special.

“​It’s a town which I’ve visited practically every summer for as long as I can remember, mainly for the Fairground that comes for the entire school summer holidays.

“The high street is bustling, the shops are open and there is a lovely, happy vibe. There is an amazing sense of community, the locals are proud of their small independent shops and regularly use them. The shop keepers work together and share ideas. People chat in the street and shop keepers know their customers by name. It seems to be, at least partly, down to an initiative called ‘Totally Locally’.”
