Welcome To The Kingseat Community Information Site
The village of Kingseat is in the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland and is situated on the B912 road being 1.5 miles north east of Dunfermline and lying between Dunfermline and Kelty. It owes it's origin to coal mining in the mid 1800's when a total of 4 pits were worked. Mining ceased in 1945 although Scottish Coal has recently been working an Opencast site on the outskirts of the village.
The village consists of approximately 430 houses. It has a Community Centre and a Church of Scotland.
On the outskirts of the village is Loch Fitty which used to be run as a trout fishery, although now closed down, it is still a popular place for anglers and dog walkers, it is also along the Pilgrims Way trail.
The village has an active Community Council and Bloom in Kingseat group - further information about these groups and others is to found on this website.

National Power of Attorney Day
Every year thousands of people across Scotland lose capacity. It could be an accident, a head injury, a stroke or an ongoing progressive illness such as Dementia. Over the last couple of years Covid-19 has had a huge impact with people of all ages incapacitated while being treated. The only way you can plan for your future is to appoint someone with Power of Attorney.
Having a Power of Attorney in place ensures the welfare and financial choices made before incapacitation are protected.
The purpose of the campaign is to bring this message to our communities letting people know the benefits of having one and what can happen if you don't.
The campaign started in 2013 in Glasgow, created by a small group of health care professionals concerned with the number of adults incapacitated and stuck in hospital without a Power of Attorney whilst waiting on a guardianship order being granted. The success in Glasgow caught the attention of other Health and Social Care Partnerships across Scotland and we now have 29 partnerships involved.
Kingseat Community Emergency Plan
A Kingseat Village Emergency Plan has been evolved to enable the village to counter any emergencies that may arise in or around the village. Some examples are:- fire, flooding, serious accident, prolonged loss of mains power or sustained loss of water pressure.
A team has been designated to mobilise actions and help. Please make yourself aware of the general plan and contacts. View the plan here.

Kingseat Community Council Notice - Coronavirus
Winter Watch Neighbourhood Help
This is going to be a difficult time for us all.
It is vital that we look after those in our community who are most vulnerable, but at the same time remember to keep safe and to stay at home.
There are ways in which we can all work together to ensure we offer what support we can.
Keep in contact with your neighbours – telephone, text, email.
Offer help where it is possible remembering the stay safe rules.
Many of you may have kept the WinterWatch numbers and you can still use these to communicate a difficulty and where possible the members of the Community Council will try to assist –
