Rosyth Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Kingdom of Fife...

A town and harbour on the Forth, just west of the Rail Bridge, it owes its existence to a natural deep channel which made it ideal as a base for warships in the early 20th century.

As the town was being planned from scratch, it was laid out as a 'garden city' to house the workers at the dockyard and naval base.

The closure of the dockyard in the 1990s was a blow but Rosyth is now an important ferry port linking Scotland with Europe.
