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!

Fans of our annual Spooky Walk, head to our Event Booking site to grab yourself a slot in this year's spooky extravaganza! This is our annual scarefest where the crew, fundraisers and helpers all dress up and take you on a spooky tour around Kinghorn's ancient and bloody past in order to raise money for the RNLI. We'll keep you up to date via Facebook and Twitter as well. Get in quickly as tickets can sell fast!

** RECRUITMENT: WE NEED YOU ** Why not volunteer with us and help save lives at sea? You'd be surprised who can do it! See our recruitment pages and crew case studies to find out more. Come and visit us any Sunday morning if you would like to meet the crew.
