Things to do

Inchview Apartment, Kinghorn, Fife

Sporting activities

The village of Kinghorn has a lovely, sheltered, safe, accessible beach in which to swim. There are outdoor tennis courts, a bowling club, a sailing club in the harbour; fishing and canoeing in Kinghorn Loch; windsurfing and kite surfing in Pettycur Bay; and horse riding at Lochore. There are indoor swimming pools at Pettycur Bay, Burntisland and Kirkcaldy.

There are more than 20 golf courses within 20 miles and the local 18-hole course at Kinghorn Golf Club is directly opposite the apartment.

Walking

There is an abundance of walks in the area, from historical trails around the village to miles of coastal paths starting practically on the doorstep. The surrounding countryside offers beautiful walks through the nature reserves. The spectacular Pettycur Beach stretches out to Burntisland, offering a fantastic three-mile walk when the tide is out.

The Binn is the big hill that lies between Burntisland and Kinghorn and offers remarkable views across the river to Edinburgh and the Pentland hills. This is a fabulous walk on trails straight from the village. Kinghorn also has its own eco farm which has educational workshops and trails for children.

Cycling

The Fife countryside is ideal for road cycling, and there are many forest trails and mountain bike trails all within short driving distance. The apartment has maps, route suggestions and ideas for cafe stops to help you plan your adventures.

Days out

There are plenty of activities to entertain the family, whatever the weather. A short journey takes you to Deep Sea World at North Queensferry, where you can watch the seals demonstrate their tricks, or you can swim with the sharks (or just watch them!). Lochore Meadows country park is a great day out for the family and ice skating can be found in nearby Kirkcaldy.

Boat trips run from various coastal locations to some of the many islands in the Firth of Forth.

A 40-minute train journey takes you across the iconic Forth rail bridge into Edinburgh, where the majestic castle dominates the skyline.
