Kingskettle


Fife

A village in the Howe of Fife, Kingskettle lies to the south of the River Eden and west of the A92 between Glenrothes and Cupar.

Known locally as Kettle (the name of the parish), it is said to take its name from the cathel or battle that took place here between Scots and Danes. The village developed in the 19th Century with the creation of the turnpike road c.1800 and the opening of the railway to Cupar in 1847, linen weaving and the working of coal and lime being major sources of employment.
