Visit Dalgety Bay - Best of Dalgety Bay

Dalgety Bay (/dælˈɡɛti ˈbeɪ/, Scots: Dawgety) is a coastal town and parish in Fife, Scotland, on the north shore of the Firth of Forth. According to Fife Council, the town is home to 10,030, making this the eighth-largest place in Fife. The civil parish has a population of 10,777 (in 2011). The bay was named after the original village of Dalgety, but the ruins of the 12th century St Bridget's Kirk are all that now mark the site. The new town, which was built in 1962, takes its name from the main bay it adjoins, but the town stretches over many bays and coves including Donibristle Bay and St David's Bay. Today, Dalgety Bay is a dormitory suburb of Edinburgh. While the architecture of the town reflects construction by volume housebuilders, the town is a regular winner of the Best Kept Small Town title. Its rise in population mirrors its rise in popularity as a coastal commuter town. A series of radioactive objects have been found on the shoreline of Dalgety Bay since the 1990s. The objects come from eroded landfill that contains debris from Second World War aircraft that originally had radium dials. In 2013, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency found that the Ministry of Defence was solely responsible for the contamination. Dalgety Bay contains 9 Listed Buildings or structures.
