Kirkcaldy (kir-caw-day) wins no prizes for prettiness; its slightly shabby promenade sprawls along the edge of the sea for several miles to the ruins of Ravenscraig Castle, with spectacular pounding surf on windy days. The town is famous as the birthplace of 18th-century Enlightenment philosopher and economist Adam Smith (who features on English £20 notes issued between 2007 and 2016), but it's only worth a stop for its interesting museum.
