Kinghorn Lifeboat Station is an RNLI funded and operated rescue station on the coast of Fife, three miles from Kirkcaldy and across the Forth estuary from Edinburgh. We are available and ready 24 hours a day, every single day of the year to assist the MCA (Coastguard agency) in effecting rescues between Elie Ness/Aberlady to the east, and Inchcolm/Granton to the west.

In 2015 we are celebrating 50 years of saving lives at sea. It was in 1965 that the RNLI first placed a lifeboat in Kinghorn. Please join us in celebrating our golden anniversary in 2015!
