Cameron Bridge


A settlement at a bridge over the River Leven just south of Windygates in South Fife. Situated 2 miles (3 km) west of Leven, it was the first upstream crossing of the river when the ford at Leven was flooded. An earlier bridge was rebuilt in 1870. A distillery was established here by John Haig in 1824, which is now one of the largest producers of grain spirit in Scotland. The B-listed Cameron House was built by the Haigs in 1849 and was the early home of Field Marshal Douglas Haig (1861 - 1928). It became the administration block for an infectious diseases hospital built here in 1911, which evolved into a local general hospital, Cameron Hospital. Cameron Bridge has a railway station, opened in 2024 on a branch railway which had fallen from use in the 1990s but was rebuilt with Scottish Government funding as the Levenmouth Rail Link.
