Other accommodation near Leven

The seaside town of Leven perfectly exemplifies what makes the country of Scotland so downright lovely and beautiful. Whether a town is in the historic and lush highlands or sitting amid one of the many gorgeous lochs or resting along the sea one can be sure that it is incredibly beautiful if it is located in Scotland. Leven, located in the county of Fife, is no exception to this rule. For one, the town lays right alongside the beloved Firth of Forth. This famed fjord is the estuary that collects the flow of the River Forth and thus the land that surrounds it is endowed with a particular beauty that simply can't be replicated. Many visitors to Leven make it a point to do some sailing or rowing in this lovely body of water but the fact remains that you can find plenty to love on the land in Leven as well as in the water.

One of the most popular facets of Leven is the great golf games that can be played on the lush courses within town. Scoonie Links is a great place to go through eighteen rounds while never being bored with the sights but many tourists often prefer to play at Leven Links. This famed course is often used as a qualifying course for the Open. The biggest golf fans, however, play at both courses and then go to the many beautiful courses lying right outside the town. All told, one can spend a week in and around Leven and not play on the same course twice.

Many people assume that Leven earned its name because it is located near Loch Leven but the truth of the matter is that both the town and the lake were named around the same time and the "Leven" originally meant "Flood" in Scotland. This is definitely an appropriate moniker because Loch Leven is known to flood fairly easily here and there. At any rate, many are in fact worrying about the town due to the fact that many employers have left Leven in the last few decades. The fact that the famed Leven Railway closed down some time ago also has put a dent in the fortunes of the town. The decline of the mining industry, once a major factor for employment in town, also didn't help matters at all. The worst part, however, is that the railway closed down right around the same time that the decline of coal mining occurred on a large scale. Luckily, Leven is not a town that will go down without a fight. Already there are plans to create an even larger and more phenomenal railway and companies like Diageo and other industrial giants are offering previously unheard of jobs to the people in Leven. Though such rebuilding often takes time it can be comfortably predicted that Leven is only just beginning and in a few years the town will be larger, bolder, and even more beautiful than it has ever been.
