Kilconquhar is a 'must see' for anyone fortunate enough to visit Fife.
We might be one of the smallest villages in the East Neuk of Fife, but we are also amongst the most charming, with some impressive natural and architectural attractions.

Our Community Group, Beautiful Kilconquhar was formed in 2009.
Fife Council got us started with an invitation to all Fife Villages and towns to enter the Beautiful Fife Campaign.
Kilconquhar with the adjacent Barnyards was already a beautiful place to live.
With a small committee and volunteers we did make improvements with lovely floral displays.
Every year since 2009 we have entered the Beautiful Fife campaign and since 2011 also the Beautiful Scotand Campaign.
Our group with lots of help from villagers continue to maintain floral displays and tubs as well as looking after public areas verges, footpaths.
We have developed areas in the village, including the Quiet Garden in the Churchyard, the Dale Garden and the Dale Path.
We have made many improvements in the historic access, called Cockie Chairlie's Way in Barnyards. Trees have been planted and a wildflower meadow planted after the ground was cleared.
We are maintaining our heritage with futher research.We arrange litter picking and supplying dog bags.Trees have been planted in other areas, and we look after the bus shelters and volunteers care for the War memorial Garden.
Foremost is our bio-diversity, planting from seeds and recycling plants.
