The 'Old Toon', Gateside

A village in Strathmiglo Parish, W Fife, Gateside lies 2 miles (3 km) west of Strathmiglo on the north bank of the River Eden and straddling the A91 road to St Andrews.

Once the site of the chapel of St Mary of Dungaitside, which belonged to the monks of Balmerino Abbey, it comprises the old fermtoun village of Gateside, the hamlet of Edensbank, and a 19th-century roadside settlement formerly known as Edentown or Edenshead. During the 19th century the Gateside Mills produced wooden bobbins and shuttles for weaving factories. Today these mills produce clothing, furniture and turned wood components.
