Lundin Links is a resort and dormitory town in the East Neuk of Fife, situated on Largo Bay adjacent to Lower Largo. It mainly developed as a 19th century suburban extension of Lower Largo accommodating holiday makers, but takes its name from the Lundin family who were granted land here in the 12th century. In addition to a fine beach, Lundin Links has tennis courts, bowling greens, a putting green and 18-hole and 9-hole golf courses. Within the grounds of the Lundin Ladies Golf Club, which is the oldest woman's golf course in the world, are located the three Lundin Links standing stones which date from the 2nd millennium BC.

The Fife Coastal Path. The Fife Coastal Path skirting the spectacular Fife shoreline, offers an ideal way to sample the area's rich heritage. It introduces the visitor to its wealth of castles, churches, harbours, milestones and red-roofed 'little houses'.

"Largo is bounded by the parishes of Kilconquhar, Newburn, Ceres and Scoonie. It contains the villages of Upper Largo (or Kirkton), Lower Largo, Lundin Mill and New Gilston. It is about 4.5 miles north - south and 3 miles in breadth. To the west of Largo Law, a deeply wooded ravine, Keil’s Den, intersects the parish from north - south. It is laid out with footpaths and is very picturesque, so is a favourite resort for all those who visit in the summer for sea bathing. The village of Lower Largo stands on the bay. Most of the houses have a decaying look, being mostly built from red sandstone taken from the sea. In old times a large trade was carried on here with Holland, and more recently Norway, but that is long at an end. Upper Largo is a well-built village with a number of good houses and shops. There is an institution in the village called Wood’s Hospital, for the maintenance of indigent persons of the name of Wood. Both Upper and Lower Largo are favourite resorts for sea bathing. The village of Lundin Mill is chiefly inhabited by weavers. The village of New Gilston is chiefly inhabited by miners. A noted native of the parish was Alexander Selkirk, the prototype of Robinson Crusoe. Besides the parish church, there is a Free Church at Kirkton, and a UP Church and a Baptist Church at Lower Largo." edited from Westwood's Directory for the counties of Fife & Kinross published 1862.
