Crossford - Fife - Scotland

Crossford Main Street looking West towards the centre of the village.

Crossford is small village (Population in 1991 - 2830) that sits on the A994, about a mile west of  Scotland's ancient capital of Dunfermline. It is located in Central Scotland to the North of the River Forth with it's famous steel bridge. It lies just over twelve miles from Scotland's modern capital, Edinburgh. A former weaving village, Crossford is said to take its name from the ford crossed by monks on their way between the abbeys of Dunfermline and Culross. To the south-east lies the 18-hole Pitfirrane golf course of the Dunfermline Golf Club whose clubhouse was the mansion of the Halkett family, owners of the former Pitfirrane Estate until 1951.
