An ancient royal burgh, Inverkeithing lies on the Firth of Forth just a few miles from Edinburgh airport. The town was the birthplace of Samuel Greig (1735-88) who created a navy for Russia's Catherine the Great. In 1651 Cromwell crushed the forces of Charles 11 near Pitreavie House.

St. Peter's Church has one of Scotland's finest medieval fonts, believed to have been a royal gift. Curiously, the last sighting of Alexander 111 (1241-86) occured in the town before he tumbled off a cliff at Kinghorn.

The town's Tolbooth dates from the late 18th century while ‘Thomsoun's House' and ‘Fordell's Lodging' are both 17th century structures. At one time the area was famous for ship-breaking and among the tragic victims were the Titanic's sister ships, the ‘Homeric' and the ‘Olympic'.
