The first residents moved into Glenrothes about seventy years ago – and the post-war New Town has been warmly welcoming visitors ever since.

Glenrothes’ meticulously planned landscape provides residents and visitors with an abundance of open green spaces, a wealth of leisure facilities, a network of cycle paths and an amazing art trail featuring over 170 unique sculptures, murals, decorated tiles and poetic paths.

One of the best ways to get to know Glenrothes is to follow the Town Art Trail. Not only will this artistic route take you all over the town, you never know what, or who, will pop up next!

The Town Art Trail’s 172 public artworks include a family of hippos, a ring of dancing children, giant mushrooms and 13 carved concrete slabs arranged into a circle of standing stones. The Town Art Trail winds its way through several attractive parks, including Riverside Park, which has woodland walks, children’s play areas and beautiful gardens.

Fancy a night out? Glenrothes has a good choice of pubs and clubs and places to eat, as well as an independent cinema, The Kino. Rothes Halls, next to the popular Kingdom Shopping Centre, is a great venue for live music, theatre, comedy, dance and children’s shows.
