About Kirkcaldy

Situated on Scotland's east coast, the town of Kirkcaldy is home to a population of around 50,000, making it the largest settlement in Fife.

The town lies around 12 miles north of Edinburgh and 28 miles south of Dundee and offers excellent transport links to both cities. The average house price in Kirkcaldy is typically below the Scotland-wide average making houses and flats for sale in Kirkcaldy an attractive option for many, especially those who are happy to make a short commute. Two bedroom houses in the town can often be found for less than £100,000, with larger family homes available for around the £200,000.

Perhaps best known as the birthplace of Adam Smith - the father of modern economics - Kirkcaldy also boasts Europe's longest street market, the Links Market, which celebrated its 700th anniversary in 2004.

Whether you're looking to buy or sell in Kirkcaldy, our local solicitor estate agents will be perfectly placed to help you every step of the way.

Area insider

karengKaren Graham, Manager of the ESPC showroom in Dunfermline tells us what she likes about living in Kirkcaldy.

Favourite watering hole:

The Dean Park Hotel.  It makes it even more appealing that it’s literally 50 seconds from my front door!

Favourite place for eating and why:

I would have to also say the same as above - I’m lazy and the food is fantastic!

An interesting fact about the area:

We have our only little ‘winter wonderland’ when it snows! I could build a snowman with the snow that we have lying here, when houses just a few hundred yards from us have none!

What I love the most:

We live on a great little street. It’s very private for a newer property whereby none of the houses look in to each other.  We have really easy access into Kirkcaldy and also the surrounding areas.

Favourite local business:

I would have to say our ESPC members firms who are based here.  Have a look at the back of this paper to find a solicitor in the area if you’re thinking of moving!

Describe the area in three words:

Must be good! (I’ve lived here for ten years next week and it’s this is the longest I have ever stayed in a house!)

Is there anyone famous associated with the area:

We actually have a few famous Langtonians, but more recent famous figures from the area include Gordon Brown, the former Prime Minister and artist, Jack Vettriano.
