Season: winter

This is an excellent family beach, situated to the east of Kinghorn, with views across the Firth of Forth.  Harbour Beach at Kinghorn is sandy, with rock pools and cliffs behind.  The Fife Coastal Path passes this way and the village of Kinghorn is attractive and friendly.  A nearby golf course and parking complete the picture, making this a welcoming and convenient place to visit.

Season: summer

The beach sits in front of the RNLI station at Kinghorn Harbour, with its B Class boat and excellent access to the Firth of Forth.  The passing shipping is always of interest here, particularly with the lights of Edinburgh in the evening as a backdrop.  On this occasion the warm sunshine had brought visitors and locals down to the harbourside to enjoy a coffee or the constantly changing view in front of them.
