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 again 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.

To all Dog Owners

There are still too many instances of dog fouling around the village, particularly around the children's play areas.  Please bag and remove dog waste, you know who you are. If there isn't a bin to hand, take it home and bin it. Don't leave little parcels of dog poo in public areas, they won't magically disappear. 

 

Dog fouling is a health hazard to our/your children
