Nice building with beautiful war memorial
Aug 2021 • Solo
I found out there are two buildings for this Church, being the Kirk by the Sea and Church on the High Street. The Church on the High Street is in a good location and has a wonderful war memorial I don’t think I’ve seen a war memorial with a soldier holding a bomb/mortar shell and I found it thought provoking.

Church With Stunning Views
Aug 2020
Although a church has been here since the 12th century, the present structure is only from the 18th century and built on top of the graveyard of the predecessor church. There's doesn't seem to be any notability related to the church except for it's position by the shore and it's stunning views of the Forth, which also gives its alternative name 'The Kirk by the Sea'.

Short visit
May 2018 • Couples
Whilst exploring the area of Kinghorn with my wife last Saturday, we came across the Parish Church and graveyard. It is situated directly behind Kinghorn Harbour.
The partial shell of a medieval chancel survives to the east of the present church.
Kinghorn Parish Church is also known as 'The Kirk by the Sea'.
Because of the close proximity to the sea many of the gravestones have suffered from weathering.
All in all, a pleasant short visit. Area looks well kept, and Its location offers superb views out across the Forth.

This is a small well kept graveyard that dates back to the 16th century, the church is in ruins, has great views to over the east coast, worth a visit if graveyards are your thing.

The Kirk by the sea
Jul 2017 • Solo
Occupying a dominating view of the old harbour bay this church dates back to the 13th century .The Churchyard is maintained by Fife Council and has many old gravestones in it .There is a good view of the Forth estuary and while I was there the new Aircraft carrier from the dockyard steamed past on trials his is an active church although services at the moment are being held in a church on the high street
