|[Dysart's rock-cut harbour]|
A short distance east along the coast from busy Kirkcaldy is the cute fishing village of Dysart, not far from 15th century Ravenscraig Castle. Despite long since merging with the expanding suburbs of its larger neighbour, Dysart retains a separate identity helped by its separate history and several old buildings. The highlight is the beautiful old harbour, beside seaside houses which used to house salt pan workers and overlooked by the huge tower of St Serf's Church. Uphill at the centre crossroads is the imposing Tolbooth, separated from the coast by flats which are... well, let's not dwell on that.
