For a good selection of shops and a wider range of schools you need look no further than Kirkcaldy. This bustling town hosts the popular Fife Central Retail Park (just a five-minute drive from Rosslyn Gait), plenty of independent and chain shops, and a 24-hour Asda within walking distance of the development.

Add all of this to the fantastic transport links to the wider area, and the beautiful Fife coastline just a couple of miles away, and Rosslyn Gait could be your perfect place to call home.
