Planning Your Journey

Fife College is committed to reducing all emissions relating to travel, and encouraging the use of low-carbon transport to our campuses is a key action to reduce emissions. We have therefore detailed below some alternative methods of getting to campus.

To plan your journey using public transport options, you can use Traveline.

Levenmouth campus is just off the A915, making it a very accessible campus to travel from areas including Kirkcaldy (20 minutes), Cupar (26 minutes), and Dunfermline (30 minutes). 

If coming from South of the campus (e.g., Kirkcaldy), follow either the A955 onto Methilhaven Road then take a left and another left and you will arrive at Fife College. Or you can follow the A915, and take the 3rd exit onto B932, then take the 3rd exit onto A955, then finally turn right and Fife College will be on the left. 

If coming from North of the campus (e.g., Cupar), follow either the A915 or A916 to Buckhaven, then take the 1st exit onto B932. Then at the next roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Methilhaven road, then take a right and finally turn left.

If the above transport modes are not feasible, the campus has 40 car-parking spaces, and additional parking may be available in the school carpark. This can be accessed by driving straight past Levenmouth campus, and taking the 3rd exit at the roundabout.
