Comrie


Fife

A mining village in west Fife, Comrie lies immediately to the west of Oakley on the A907 road between Dunfermline and Alloa. There had been coal and ironstone mining in the vicinity since mid-19th C. but the community developed in the 1930s and 1940s along with the sinking of the Comrie coal mine to the northwest (1936-40) by the Fife Coal Co. The mine later became associated with the Longannet Complex, but closed in the mid-1980s. To the south of the village the Comrie Burn flows westwards to meet the Bluther Burn.
