An 18 hole, links course located by the Firth of Forth in Fife, Scotland. Leven Links measures a modest 6506 yards. The history of Leven Links is, suffice to say, long and complex but what is most important is the nature of the ground upon which it is built. Local conditions of winds and tides during prehistoric times, when sea levels were falling combined to produce a series of parallel dune ridges which give Leven Links a truly unique signature.

Coach Hire Fife, Scotland is located 2.0 miles from Letham Glen. Letham Glen is a woodland valley located just off the A911 at the roundabout which directs visitors to the Town of Leven or, the East Fife Tourist Trail.



The Glen, offers visitors a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of traffic and urban noise.
It provides a formal entrance with car park, floral bedding schemes and sunken garden. In Spring, the cherry trees are a profusion of colourful blooms.The Glen slopes down on either side of the Scoonie Burn and further into the Glen visitors can take a circular walk of aprroximately forty minutes through a peaceful woodland valley setting, or, there are several bridges over Scoonie Burn which offer shorter walks.










The old Glen footpath was originally part of a drove road, taking cattle to market. This "Right of Way" was also used by monks to go to the harbour to collect fish. Letham Glen had an ochre mine - sunk in 1802. By 1830 a lot of yellow ochre was exported abroad as a pigment for paint. Many fishermen's cottages were painted with paint containing yellow ochre dye. The site of the mine can still be identified and the stone wheel for grinding the ochre can be seen in the Glen.There were also coal mines around Letham Glen at Durie, Broom, Sauchenbush and Siller Hole. 
During the mining depression of 1920 local miners were employed to build an outdoor Swimming Pool where the Sunken Garden now stands. At that time the area north of the Glen was known as "Spinky Den" (Spinky meaning Primroses). In 1925, the land owner, Mr. Letham donated the Glen to the people of Scoonie and Leven and the stone pillared steel entrance gates were erected. After the Second World War the Swimming Pool was made into a Fish Pond and now stands as a Sunken Garden.


The farm which had been near Letham Gate was known as Lower Scoonie. The little farm cottages were later, converted into toilets by the main gate. These were later demolished and modern toilets erected.
In recent years, a very important Iron Age Burial Chamber was discovered to the North East of the Glen on the site of new house building

Coach Hire Fife, Scotland is 5 Miles away from Lower Largo, Lower Largo is home to a staue of Robinson Crusoe which marks the site of the cottage where Alexander Selkirk was born. Selkirk born in the Village of Lower Largo ran away to sea as a young man. It was in later life that he was put ashore on the Pacific Island which was to become his home for over four and a half years until he was rescued by a passing ship.





Lower Largo situated at the mouth of the River Keil on the Firth of Forth is an attractive holiday Village. It is an ideal base for touring Fife and the East Coast Villages of the East Neuk.
Lower Largo grew as a herring fishing village and later as a manufacturer of fishing nets. Today, many fishing and pleasure boats can still be found in the harbour.
The river Keil flows into the Firth of Forth at the point where a pier and small harbour has been built. To the West side of the pier are an attractive collection of fishing cottages and houses. To the East is the Crusoe Hotel and the older part of the village. The houses and cottages on Main Street back directly onto the sea, stopped by sturdy stone walls. As tide goes out, miles of sandy beaches stretch East and West hugging the shore line of the Firth of Forth.
