It’s where former Prime Minister Gordon Brown went to school, and where crime writer Val McDermind is from.
Kirkcaldy is Scotland’s most romantic town, according to new research.
Couples in the Fife town spending more on each other for Valentine’s than anywhere else in Scotland.
Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown was educated at Kirkcaldy High School along with the crime writer Val McDermid.
The least romantic place – where couples spend less on each other than anywhere else – was Hamilton in Lanarkshire, followed by Bellshill in Lanarkshire and Penicuik in Midlothian.
Jock Stein was born in Burnbank, Hamilton, and other famous people from the town include the late Taggart actor Mark McManus
Forfar in Angus was revealed to be the second most romantic place, followed by Inverness in third and Dalkeith and Stirling in 4th and 5th place.
The figures were compiled by Lovehoney- the UK’s biggest sexual wellness brand – from spending stats on couples’ sexy gift buying in the build-up to Valentine’s.
Lovehoney spokesperson, product director Bonny Hall, said: “Couples in Kirkcaldy are the most romantic in Scotland – spending more on each other than anywhere else in Scotland in the build-up to Valentine’s.
“Couples that play together, stay together. The key to sexual happiness is to be bold and adventurous, especially around Valentine’s Day.”
Kirkcaldy came tenth in the national table which was headed by King’s Lynn in Norfolk.
