Rent a Self Catering Cottage in Methil Fife Scotland


Rent a Self Catering Cottage in Methil, Fife, Scotland. This spacious, traditional double upper apartment with an enclosed, sheltered garden, is an ideal base for exploring the Ancient Kingdom of Fife.

Until the 1900 Methilhill was a tiny village made up of a handful of miners cottages sited in the Pirnie Street - Grieve Street area. Throughout the 1910's and 1920's most of modem day Methilhill was built, from Brown Crescent to Queen's Square, to house the huge number of miners and their families coming to work in the local pits. At the time these houses were amongst the best miners houses in Scotland. As well as coal mining, many people in Methilhill worked at the nearby Cameronbrig distillery.

The area now defined as Levenmouth is a relatively new creation. The towns and villages of Buckhaven, Methil, Leven, Methilhill, East Wemyss, Kennoway and Windygates were once completely independent of each other with very different histories and communities. Periods of housing development during the end of the last century, the 1920s and again in the 1950s caused many of these villages to swell and merge into each other until today it is difficult to say where one town stops and the other begins. However, visitors beware! Strong community identities still exist.
