St David's Harbour

A modern residential housing development on the Firth of Forth between Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay, initiated in the 1990s for commuters. The original harbour was built in 1752 by Sir Robert Henderson as an outlet for coal brought by rail from mines at Fordell. Originally, horse drawn wagons ran on wooden rails, although by 1870 steam trains were operating on the line. The railway was closed in 1946.

Today there is an adjacent business park and residential development at St David's Bay.
