An industrial town with a sprinkling of history
Rosyth is a large hamlet in the Scottish region of Fife, most known for its pretty churches and Nearby Royal British Navy dockyard. It's also a handy base for exploring the many wonders of historic Edinburgh. The ruins of a 15th century tower house - Rosyth Castle - sit at the dockyard’s edge, and a well-preserved dovecot, with beautiful barrel-vaulted ceilings, sits just half a mile north of the castle and dates back to the 16th Century.
