To find out the answers to these questions, locals are invited to take the guided tour of Kirkcaldy Old Kirk graveyard at 2pm on Fridays in May and June.

Or if you want to find out where Adam Smith, went to school, locals can find out by taking the Saturday guided tour "In the Footsteps of Adam Smith", starting at 2pm from the Old Kirk tower door.

There are seven places on each Friday and each Saturday tour, which can be booked at or by phoning 01592 265499. Each tour lasts about an hour and a quarter and is free, although donations are very welcome.
