A Few Days More
For Free: Set yourself a challenge and walk a stretch of Fife Coastal Path every day of your visit. This well-maintained route goes along clifftops, across rocks, over sandy beaches and through a few of Levenmouth’s charming coastal villages, including West Wemyss and East Wemyss. Some sections can easily be turned into circular walks – or take advantage of the excellent local bus service and jump on the bus at the end of your walk to be taken back to your starting point.
Make a detour into Methil to enhance your local knowledge with the information boards in Methil Memorial Park. Go window-shopping in Leven’s bustling High Street. Search for the real-life, Fife-born Robinson Crusoe in Lower Largo. And, at the end of the Levenmouth stretch of Fife Coastal Path, go birdwatching at Dumbarnie Nature Reserve.
For Fun: Discover the Together Levenmouth Community Hub – you may never want to leave! Located on Leven High Street, this new and exciting venue has a unique crazy golf course featuring places in Fife, nail-bitingly thrilling escape rooms, an artisan market offering the best of local arts and crafts and a friendly café.
If you’re a football fan, check out if East Fife are playing at home at Methil’s Bayview Stadium, while film fans can enjoy a night at the flicks at Leven’s Kino Cinema.
For Heritage & Culture: Discover how the local railway lines contributed to the history and heritage of Levenmouth at Fife Heritage Railway, on the outskirts of Leven. Admission to the site and its fascinating museum is free and, during the summer, steam locomotives run on the last Sunday of every month.
Go underground and way back in time at Wemyss Caves, where mysterious Pictish symbols are carved into the walls. Guided tours can be booked at Wemyss Caves Visitor Centre in East Wemyss. Afterwards, pop in to Auld Wemyss Ways Heritage Centre in West Wemyss and find out about the more recent residents of this corner of Levenmouth.
Wild swimming (known locally as ‘going for a dook’!) is very popular in Fife, with swimmers from near and far taking full advantage of the Kingdom’s sandy beaches and sheltered bays.
