Buckhaven Town Information

It is difficult to imagine today that in the early 19th century, Buckhaven, on the Firth of Forth was reputed to have the Scotland's second-largest fleet of around 200 fishing boats. It also had thriving textile weaving and coal mining industries but eventually all these declined and Buckhaven became a small holiday resort.

The local Museum features the history of the fishing industry and is worth a visit.
