The local area guide to living in Kelty

A former coal mining town on the border of Fife and Kiss-shire, Kelty is now a dormitory village for commuters into Edinburgh. It’s thought that settlement in Kelty may date back to Roman times, due to its unusually straight roads. The village’s development grew when the first railway between Cowdenbeath and Kinross was developed in 1860. With the arrival of the Fife Coal Company in 1872, the area became an important centre for coal production. The town’s population swelled to 9,000 curing the coal boom, but has dwindled since then to closer to 6,000. Today, the town’s mining heritage is commemorated with a life-sized miner statue outside of the village’s Kelty Library. Kelty also offers two primary schools, a community centre, and a smattering of shops in its town centre.

Information about the local residents

Once distinctly a coal mining town, modern Kelty now includes a more diverse range of residents and industries. There are a number of contemporary housing developments that have sprouted up in Kelty, to meet the demand of commuters into Edinburgh. The town is popular with families in particular, drawn to the local schools and proximity to the M90.

Kelty is part of the county of Fife, with local demographics reflecting that of the county as whole. The age distribution in Fife is comparable to that of Scotland overall. Employment statistics are also close to the national average – 67.6% of Fife residents between the ages of 16 and 74 are economically active, in comparison to 69% of Scottish residents overall. Primary industries in this county include Wholesale and Retail trade, Manufacturing, and Human health and social work.

Nearby schools

There are two primary schools in Kelty, including St Joseph’s Primary and Kelty Primary. Kelty Primary was first opened over a century ago, but has recently been refurbished with a modern extension. This school currently offers fifteen classes, an Information Technology suite, a music and reference library, and a large playground area. In an HMIE inspection of St Joseph’s Primary, the school was found to have numerous strengths including ‘responsible, well-mannered children’ and ‘positive learning experiences’.

After completing primary school, Kelty pupils move on to Beath High School in nearby Cowdenbeath. Beath first opened in 1910, moving into new accommodation in 2003. The school was rated as ‘good’ or ‘satisfactory’ in most areas in an HMIE report. Another option is St Columba’s High School in Dunfermline.

Kelty is easily accessible by car, located just off the M90 motorway. This is the major road running from Edinburgh to Perth, and as a result many residents make the commute into one of these two larger cities. It’s a 30 minute drive into Perth or 40 minutes to Edinburgh.

Train services can also be easily accessed in Dunfermline, Perth, or Edinburgh. Edinburgh International Airport is a 25 minute drive from Kelty.

Local shops

The high street in Kelty is relatively small, with a few basic services on offer for residents. There are a few takeaways as well as Co-operative supermarket and Costcutter grocery. A livelier selection of shops is available a few minutes away in Cowdenbeath, however. Here you’ll find shops selling pet supplies, home and lighting supplies, greeting card and gift shops, and charity shops. There’s also a large Morrison’s supermarket and pharmacy as well as a branch of Iceland foods. Larger shopping centres can be accessed in Perth and Edinburgh. Perth’s St John’s Shopping Centre is a popular destination for Kelty residents, with an array of high street shops.
