Whitehills Sawmill enjoys a rural setting and is situated east of Dunfermline. It lies 1.5 miles southeast of the Park and Ride at Halbeath, and Crossgates and walking distance to the Coaledge Tavern at Fordell north of the seaside resort of Aberdour. The site is desirable and lies only 2 miles from Aberdour’s railway station, with trains every half an hour to Edinburgh’s Waverley, with the journey itself only being 30 minutes.

Aberdour is a scenic and historic village, looking south to the island of Inchcolm and its Abbey, over to Leith and Edinburgh. It was nominated for "Best Coastal Resort" in Scotland. The village nestles between the bigger coastal towns of Burntisland to the east and Dalgety Bay to the west.

The village's winding High Street lies a little inland from the coast. Narrow lanes run off it, providing access to the more hidden parts of the village and the shoreline itself. The Silver Sands beach is one of Scotland's seven "Blue flag" awarded beaches, which denotes an exemplary standard of cleanliness, facilities, safety, environmental education and management.

An important asset is St Fillan's Church which is one of the best-preserved medieval parish churches in Scotland dating back to the 12th century. Furthermore, a number of vernacular buildings of the 17th and early 19th centuries, like the castle, add to the historic scene.

Aberdour has a very popular yearly festival, which runs from late July to early August and features musical events, shows, sporting events and children's events.

There are restaurants and local shops at Aberdour and Crossgates with larger supermarkets, leisure centres and excellent facilities in Halbeath (M90) 3.2m, and in Dunfermline (5.5 miles), Perth (29 miles), and Edinburgh (20m).


The indicative layouts in these particulars is shown on Page 3. The planning permission was granted at appeal. Possible house types are annexed but there may be scope for a purchaser to have a house designed specifically for them.

    OnTheMarket may have applied supplementary data to this property listing, including:

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
