The Scotland region

Kilconquhar is a very pretty village with Barnyards beside it. It lies beside Kilconquhar Loch to the north of Elie. Records go back to the 12th Century and over the centuries there have been many different spellings of the name. It does seem that the name derives from Kil which is a name associated with early churches and Kilconquhar which comes from Conquhar or Connacher.

Kilconquhar loch has many water plants but there is no longer fishing. There are many different species of birds and wild fowl and Fife Bird Club have a hide at the end of the loch. Geese often spend the winter on the loch and it is also home to many swans. "The Loch, which is a beautiful sheet of water, lying close to the village and church, covers fully 96 acres. It abounds with water-plants of many kinds, and is said to swarm with pike and eel. It has long been a favourite haunt of swans, and its glassy surface is generally dotted with these majestic sailors."Winter 2010 saw the loch freeze and curling took place for the first time for years and local clubs participated. The Loch is a Site of Special Scientific Interest which is a designation denoting a protected area.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust Barnyards Marsh can be visited. It has boardwalk through parts of it and you can view the various species of sedges, plants, insects and birds. The main entrance is situated opposite Kinneuchar Inn beside the Car Park.

Elie

The church which was built in 1820-21 is adjacent to the loch and is a handsome building with a high tower. In the Church yard can be seen the remains of the old church.

Our village is in a conservation area and there are many listed buildings and houses. There are now no shops or businesses apart from Kinneuchar Inn. However in years gone by the village had a number of shops and businesses.

The booklet "Kilconquhar: A Hidden Gem" which has been published by the Beautiful Kilconquhar group gives details of a walk around Kilconquhar with information of past life in our village with anecdotes from local people. It is available from Kinneuchar Inn or by contacting 01333 340888.
