Built in the 19th century to accommodate the Victorian holidaymakers who were flocking to the extremely popular Fife Riviera, Lundin Links is Levenmouth’s New Town. However, Lundin Links has actually been a popular spot to live for considerably longer than two centuries. The Neolithic monuments standing proudly on one of the town’s two golf courses and the Pictish-era graveyard bordering its beautiful beach are tangible mementoes of Levenmouth’s fascinating earliest residents.
Lundin Links’ streets of grand Victorian villas which were once hotels are a striking reminder of the glory years of this seaside resort, which is still an understandably popular place to holiday.
As well as a good choice of places to stay, eat and drink, including The Old Manor Hall, there’s a lovely beach, a bowling club and two excellent golf courses. The Open Qualifier Course Lundin Links is considered one of the top 100 golf courses in Scotland and, as well as great golf, offers spectacular views across the Firth of Forth. Neighbouring Lundin Ladies Golf Club is one of the oldest surviving ladies golf clubs in the world. Run by its lady members (although men are allowed to play there), the club’s 9-hole golf course has a unique hazard on the fairway – the Lundin Links Standing Stanes, which are over 4,000 years old.
