A short distance east along the coast from busy Kirkcaldy is the cute fishing village of Dysart. 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 cottages which used to house salt pan workers and overlooked by the huge tower of St Serf's Church. A short walk uphill to the central crossroads and you'll find the imposing Tolbooth, separated from the coast by some seriously ugly flats; unbelievably, one carries a plaque claiming it's won an award for architecture. Sure - a Carbuncle Award maybe...
