The high street is a busy pedestrianised thoroughfare where our store is located.  Parking facilities are within easy walking distance of the town centre. There is also a retail park, so the town has a wide range of major shops, supermarkets and many local specialist stores.

Leven is a popular holiday destination with a pleasant promenade and beach.  There are recreational woodlands, Letham Glen and Silverburn Forest and the town boasts two golf courses. Coupled with a swimming pool and leisure centre there is plenty to see and do.  Situated 37 miles north of Edinburgh and 27 miles south of Dundee, its two nearest towns of Kirkcaldy are 10 miles to the south and Glenrothes is 7 miles to the west. Regular buses run from the Leven bus station to towns and villages within the area, Dundee being just over an hour’s bus ride away. The reinstatement of Levenmouth Rail Link for which works have already started will provide the area with a major boost to economic connectivity.
