A village in Auchtermuchty Parish in the Howe of Fife, Dunshalt is situated on the north bank of the River Eden, on the B936 road, a mile (1.5 km) southeast of Auchtermuchty. Sometimes known as Daneshalt or Dunshelt, it developed in the 18th and 19th centuries as a meal milling and textile manufacturing village on the Myers Estate.

It was built by John Scrymgeour, Master of the King's Works, who was employed in the construction of Falkland Palace to the south.
