Kirkcaldy is in the county of
Fife, on the northern coast of the Firth of Forth.
Travel between Edinburgh and
Kirkcaldy is normally via the Forth Rail Bridge or the Forth Road Bridge,
but there is currently a third option. Stagecoach are carrying out a
two-week hovercraft trial (July16-28, 2007) for the 11 mile journey across
the Firth of Forth between Portobello to Kirkcaldy.
