A Short Stop at Aberdour

In June we took a friend to see Aberdour as she’d never been there before.

Between the railway station car park (which is the easiest place to ark in the town) and the station itself is this planter in the shape of a stylised locomotive + train:-

This small building, Curlingstane House, looks cute stuck in between two others:-

Quaint House, Aberdour

The plaque below is on the same church wall as Aberdour’s War Memorial. It commemorates Lieutenant-Colonel Geoffrey Charles Tasker Keyes, killed in action, Libya, 18/11/1941:-

In the graveyard behind the church is this gravestone commemorating a war death. Flight Sergeant Pilot Walter R L Gollyer, RAF VR, killed in action, 13/7/1941, aged 22:-

Aberdour is a village few miles along the coast from Kirkcaldy going towards the Forth Bridges.

You can do a nice little walk from the Railway Station on the main road down to the harbour and along left and round by the Primary School back to the Railway Station.

Further along the main road stands the kirk which like in South Queensferry has the War Memorial incorporated into a wall.
