Lumphinnans is a small, former mining village along the B981 road, from west to east between the towns of Cowdenbeath and Lochgelly, in central Fife. The name Lumphinnans is derived from the Scottish Gaelic lann, ‘church’, of (Saint) Fhìonain or Fillan. Historically, the village had nearby collieries, an ironworks and a brickworks. Lumphinnans Primary School and St Brides RC Primary School are in the catchment area, with secondary schooling available at Beath High School and St Columbus RC High School. Independent schooling can be found in Perth (Craigclowan, Strathallan, Glenalmond and Kilgraston) Dollar Academy lies approximately 17 miles to the west and there are a number of private schools in Edinburgh.
Nearby Lochgelly approximately 10 miles North East from Dunfermline offers a number of independent retailers and has a mainline railway station on the Fife Circle line providing links to all Fife’s main population centres. The Lochgelly Centre is a modern community space with a popular and well regarded theatre within. Regular transportation is available into the nearby towns of Cardenden, Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy where further extensive facilities can be found. The A92 is within easy reach linking directly to the M90 motorway making this area an ideal commuter base to Edinburgh and most parts of central Scotland either by rail or road.
Edinburgh can be reached in about 40 minutes by car with its international airport, railway station, universities and extensive amenities including galleries, restaurants, theatres and retailers. The City of Perth is approximately 26 miles to the north, whilst Kinross some 8 miles distant has a supermarket, banks, restaurants and independent retailers.
Lochore Meadows Country Park lies to the north of the property offering fishing, cycling routes, horse riding, watersports, walking and an adventure playground. Loch Leven Nature Reserve, further north has a circular route for walking and cycling, together with the opportunity to observe a wealth of wildlife and a popular farm shop and restaurant. Sporting facilities are also available at Lumphinnans Sports Hub and Lumphinnans Bowling Club and Lochgelly Golf Course.
Accessed via a shared private farm track, which leads off the public road, Lumphinnans farm is a substantial traditional livestock farm with an attractive period house, a range of modern and traditional outbuildings and land extending to 137 Ha (339.21 Acres) with outstanding views.
The farmland is a mix of temporary grass, permanent pasture fields and rough grazings. The land lies within a single contiguous block with fields of a good workable size with many of the field boundaries marked by post and wire fencing with access directly from the farm itself. The farm has been run historically for rearing cattle. Areas of the farm at one time were utilised as an open cast mine but we understand that this was re-instated some years ago and the farm has now been in use by the current owners for a significant time period.
