The popular village of Crossgates is well situated between Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy and provides fantastic transport links to the M90 and A92. Regents Gate is just over a mile from the Halbeath Park and Ride facility, situated on the edge of the village and offers regular services to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee and the Fife area are all easily reached from the village by car or bus, a train service is also provided from Dunfermline.
A short drive away is Fife Leisure Park offering a choice of restaurants, a cinema, outdoor adventure golf, a bowling complex and a private health club. Nearby Dunfermline is a cultural hotspot where visitors and residents enjoy historic sites such as St Margaret's Cave, or the famous Dunfermline Abbey (the resting place of Robert the Bruce). The town is complimented by the tranquility and space offered by the 76-acre Pittencrieff Park. Dunfermline town centre boasts a great selection of big High-Street names and privately owned shops as well as a variety of restaurants, bars, music/theatre venues and clubs.
Crossgates is an outstanding base not only for travel to Edinburgh and the airport, but also to Perth and the east coast. Central Scotland and Glasgow can be accessed via the A985 and Kincardine Bridge. The Halbeath Park and Ride, a mile from the development and close to the Halbeath interchange of the M90, provides a convenient way of accessing bus travel into the capital, and there is a second Park and Ride facility at Ferry Toll, around six miles away. There are also local bus services into Dunfermline via Halbeath as well as to Cowdenbeath, Kirkcaldy, St Andrews and the charming East Neuk of Fife. The railway stations at Dunfermline Queen Margaret and Cowdenbeath, both less than three miles from Crossgates, are on the Fife Circle line with approximately half-hourly services to Edinburgh, a journey of less than 40 minutes.
For more local travel, a footpath along the edge of the development proves a pleasant walk into the village, where the local shops include a post office and confectioner, an off licence, hot food takeaways and other services including hairdressers. As well as being the home ground of Crossgates Primrose Junior FC, Humbug Park near the centre of the village has an extensive green area and an equipped children’s playground. Fife Leisure Park, adjacent to the Halbeath Interchange, includes a multiscreen Odeon cinema and a Bannatyne’s health club with a 25m pool, Technogym and fitness suites. The Park also offers a wide choice of restaurants. Dunfermline’s live entertainment venues include Carnegie Hall and the Alhambra Theatre, both of which present a lively and varied programme of music, drama and comedy.
