Leuchars is situated on the peninsula lying between the estuaries of the Rivers Forth and Tay. It has a parish church, dating from the 12th century, which is considered by many experts to be the finest Norman church in Scotland. About half a mile from the village is the 16th century Earshall Castle and 3 miles outside the village is Tentsmuir National Nature Reserve/Kinshaldy Beach which provides plenty of scope for woodland and seaside walks.
There are frequent bus and train services to all parts of Fife and beyond. The railway station is a 10 minute walk from the village. There is ample car parking at a cost of £1.00 per day. The local bus services connect with St Andrews and Dundee every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday and every 20 minutes on Sundays.

Leuchars Community Council have received £100 from Fife council to replace the polytunnel at the school. Once the weather improves the work will be done to put the new cover on and we hope the children will be able to start growing their own plants. It is also hoped to encourage other members of the community to come along and help fill the numerous baskets we put up in the village. We have also been awarded just under £2,000 from the Sustrans Artroots Fund to place two benches along the National Cycle Route which runs last Leuchars Station (Army) down to the church and then out along Pitlethie Road. It is hoped, once approved by Fife Council, that one bench will be placed at the bottom of Pitlethie Road, opposite the church where people can stop, take a break and admire the building with the other bench being placed outside the school.
The children at the school are working on a Shoe Share Project, a United Nations initiative to help fund education in countries where children are not getting an education. If you have unwanted shoes/boots around put an elastic band round them and take them to the school or place them in the box provided in the Community Centre. If you would like further information about this project please go to https://www.unicef.org.uk/rights-respecting-schools/resources/shoeshare/.
If anyone in the village would like a free Fire Safety Inspection in their home please contact Chris at Tayport Fire Station on 07380810286.
