Welcome To The Kingseat Community Information Site
The village of Kingseat is in the Kingdom of Fife in Scotland and is situated on the B912 road being 1.5 miles north east of Dunfermline and lying between Dunfermline and Kelty. It owes it's origin to coal mining in the mid 1800's when a total of 4 pits were worked. Mining ceased in 1945 although Scottish Coal has again been working an Opencast site on the outskirts of the village.
The village consists of approximately 370 houses. It has a Post Office/store, a Community Centre and a Church of Scotland.
On the outskirts of the village is Loch Fitty which used to be run as a trout fishery, although now closed down, it is still a popular place for anglers and dog walkers.
The village has an active Community Council and Bloom in Kingseat group - further information about these groups and others is to found on this website.

Taylor Wimpey Whitefield Road Developement - Dun 043 - 1400 houses.
Fife Council (west) today, (16th Jan) gave approval to the planning in principal application for the above developement. This is in spite all the objections put forward by some councillors and the general public. In general all the questions raised about local infrastructure,ie Education, Healthcare, Transportation (roads etc) were give the answer that 'Mitigations' will be put in place to alleviate the foreseen problems. It will mean though TW will have too meet lots of conditions before full approval is granted. What it does mean also is that the full application already submitted for the first phase (340 houses) can now be considered/decided by Fife Council.
