Located approximately 5 miles East of Kinross and 7 miles West of Glenrothes, the village is well serviced with a grocery shop and a garage. The city of Perth is approximately 20 miles to the North where there is a full range of shops, supermarkets, banks, a theatre, the Perth Concert Hall, Cinema, Perth Royal Infirmary, library and restaurants. The towns of Kinross and Glenrothes on either side of the village provide plenty of modern amenities as well as excellent transport connections.
