Balgeddie

A northwestern residential suburb of Glenrothes in Fife, Balgeddie comprises a private housing estate 1½ miles (2.5 km) northwest of the town centre. Balgeddie Farm is shown on the First Edition of the Ordnance Survey map (1855) and remains extant, operating as a riding school. The C-listed Balgeddie House Hotel was built in 1936 by Major Sir Robert Spencer Nairn as a birthday gift for a member of his family and is said to have wooden flooring obtained from a decommissioned minesweeper. Between 2008-10, the new housing was built to the west towards the original farm, which overlooks the Lothrie Burn.
