Colinsburgh is another virtually one main street with the main road straight through the centre. Coming through the village there is the Town Hall built in 1894 by Dewar and the blacksmiths yard with the small local Primary School set back between the two.

On the outskirts to the west is the Charleton Estate, with a golf course only a few years old and stables where you can go horse riding. The Estate House dates back to 1749 is two-storeys high and has been modified over the years by several architects. The Anstruthers in 1907 made a notable modification by raising the front in height and embellished it with Roman busts.

Leading down from the centre of Colinsburgh you come into Kilconquhar. A charming little village has the local Inn, which still supports the old name of the village Kinneuchar Inn, standing proudly on the corner of Main Street. The church sits up on a small hill opposite with great views of the loch behind it, where in years gone by they were able to go curling in the winter when it froze over.

Kilconquhar Castle is situated on the outskirts of the village and has been converted into a holiday village with chalets in the grounds along with sports facilities and the occupying the castle are several suites, bars and restaurants.
