Anyone looking for flats in Dalgety Bay, Fife, will find themselves in a medium-sized town whose enviable location next to the Firth of Forth makes it a wonderful location for anyone seeking to commute into Edinburgh, or those who wish to live outside the city but maintain access to all of its amenities such as its schools, sports teams, universities and shopping centres.
Dalgety Bay itself is within a short drive of North Queensferry, the site of the north end of the Forth Road bridge which spans the water to the capital city. Initially, a village simply called Dalgety resided on this particular spot on the Fife shoreline, and the bay was named after the village, but when the village crumbled away, the bay in turn offered its name back to the new town, which was constructed on the site in 1862.
The town has two primary schools which fall within the catchment area of nearby Inverkeithing's secondary school. For many other aspects of life, the residents of Dalgety Bay look to the bright lights of nearby Edinburgh, meaning that this town itself is kept comparatively free of the clutter and gaudiness which characterises many urban areas.
