Local attractions all across Central Fife opened their doors to the public on Sunday for the annual Doors Open Day event.

In Leven, the Kingdom of Fife Railway Preservation Society (KFRPS) welcomed visitors to its Kirkland Yard in Burnmill Industrial Estate, where they had an opportunity to look around the yard, speak to some of the volunteers, get up close to some beautifully restored engines, and even have a ride on the star attraction, the River Eden.

In East Wemyss, members of the Save the Wemyss Ancient Caves Society (SWACS) group were on hand to welcome visitors to the environment and education centre, before leading two walking tours to the caves later in the day. Pam Cranston, secretary of SWACS - which runs tours annually from April to September, said there was a good turnout of “enthusiastic” visitors on the day, adding: “It was great to welcome people of all ages and to share their interest in this important heritage site and unique archaeology.”

Anyone wishing to book a private tour of the caves, as the museum is now closed for the winter, should head to www.4dwemysscaves.org/

And just along the coast in Coaltown of Wemyss, the prestigious Wemyss School of Needlework opened up its exhibition rooms to the public for the special event.
