Trains to Inverkeithing roll through the east Scotland countryside before coming to rest in a quaint little town in Fife. The station dates back to 1877, and lies just 13 miles northwest of Edinburgh. Combined with the nearby M90 motorway, it has helped Inverkeithing grow into a desirable commuter town, with connections to Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath. The town itself is located on the tranquil Firth of Forth, and offers visitors grand views of one of Scotland's most famous landmarks: the spectacular Forth Road Bridge. For something more rural, head to the start of the Fife Coastal Path, or visit in August for the Highland Games. History buffs will find plenty to see too, including the Mercat Cross pillar, dating back to the 1400s, and the Greyfriars Convent, dating back to 1350. The heart of town is along High Street, a short walk from the station - turn left down Chapel Street and continue straight ahead.
