Aberdour is a scenic and historic village on the south coast of Fife, Scotland. During much of its history, it was known as 2 villages - Wester Aberdour and Easter Aberdour, situated on each side of the Dour Burn, distinction which was blurred by the later arrival of the railroad, but, which is still visible, today. Arberdour is nestled between the larger coastal towns of Burntisland, to the east, and Dalgety Bay, to the west, on the north shore of the Firth of Forth, looking south to the Island of Inchcolm and its Abbey, and to Leith and Edinburgh beyond.
The village houses 2 beautiful beaches - The Silver Sands and The Black Sands - which are very popular among visitors, and it is known in the region for having an exciting yearly festival that runs from the last week in July for a week, to early August, which is now in its 27th year, offering a number of children's, cultural and local events.
Aberdour is a wonderful place to visit, with numerous landmarks and historical buildings, its "jewel" being Aberdour Castle, which started as a modest "hall house", on a site overlooking the Dour Burn, in the 13th century. The oldest part of the present semi-ruin constitutes one of the earliest surviving stone castles in mainland Scotland. Aberdour Castle is now in the care of Historic Scotland and it is open to the public (entrance charge).
The area within which Aberdour lies boasts with captivating, historical places, such as the award winning heritage centre, Abbot House, in nearby Maygate, Dunfermline, set in its own gorgeous gardens, a stone's throw from a royal palace, monastery and abbey, where Scotland's great hero king, Robert Bruce, is buried.
Another fabulous place to visit, near Aberdour, is Burntisland Parish Church, which sits to the south of Burntisland's High Street, one of the earliest post-Reformation churches built in Scotland that remains in use today. One of the church's interesting and unusual aspects is that its structure is square, which is not very common among Scottish churches.
Also of interest, is St Bridget's Church, on the north shore of the Firth of Forth. The church was consecrated in 1244 by David de Bernham, the Bishop of St Andrews, and dedicated to Saint Bridget, also known as Saint Bride. After it became ruinous, the church passed into the care of Historic Scotland, who have restored it to the fascinating building you can see today.
Among other appealing attractions, near Aberdour, there are also: Knockhill Racing Circuit, Scotland's National Motorsport Centre with a wide range of driving activities, in Dunfermline, the Museum of Communication, in Burntisland, Dunfermline Abbey & Palace, Culross Palace, Study & Town House, the most complete example in Scotland, today, of a Burgh of the 17th and 18th centuries, in Culross, Fife, and Falkland Palace, the partially restored home of some of the Stuart monarchs, which can be found in the shadow of the distinctively shaped East Lomond, in the St Andrews area.
