Part of the route taken by medieval pilgrims heading to St Andrews and once an important stopping point for stagecoaches dashing from Pettycur Ferry on the Firth of Forth to the River Tay, Kennoway has long been welcoming travellers. Take a break from your travels and discover the hidden gems tucked away in this charming conservation village.
In days gone by, Kennoway was a weaving village and, latterly, shoemaking, malting and brewing were also added to the artisan skills of its residents.
Today, Kennoway is a tranquil village where peace and quiet are the order of the day. The historic St Kenneth’s Church is at the heart of the village, the War Memorial provides a lasting reminder of those lost in both World Wars and Kennoway Bowling Club is always a popular spot. Members of Kennoway Community Shed are dedicated to enhancing village life further by adding flower pots, wild flowers, bird boxes and red squirrel boxes – and the Shed’s door is open to visitors, who are very welcome to drop in for a chat over a cup of tea
Take time to explore beautiful Kennoway Den. Banked by tree-covered cliffsides, Kennoway Den’s attractions include a historic bridge crossing the burn, an ancient well, secret caves and the Maiden Castle, a medieval, manmade knoll where a fort once stood.
Travel a few miles along the main road and you’ll come across the hamlet of Bonnybank, with its very popular Mexican restaurant, housed in the village’s original inn.
