About Rosyth, Guide and Tourist Attractions
(Rosyth, Fife, Scotland, UK)

A large village on Scotland's east coast, Rosyth is a city full of surprises. Located in a fast-developing area, Fife, Rosyth offers its visitors views of stunningly beautiful countryside, rich history and a great number of activities.

In the town of Rosyth, you can find Rosyth Dockyard, a large naval dockyard which primarily undertakes refitting of Royal Navy surface vessels.

The construction started in 1909 and as a result, the town was planned as a 'garden city' to accommodate the workers. The dockyard acted as a key nuclear submarine maintenance area during the Cold War and was actively used in both World Wars.
