Kirkcaldy Combination


Poorhouses - Scotland

Kirkcaldy Combination - Kirkcaldy & Dysart Poorhouse, Kinghorn,  re‑named the Abden home by 1939, the plans for this poorhouse were drawn up in 1849 by William Lambie Moffatt.

A description, photographs and map are included here

It has an impressive site on the cliff tops overlooking the Firth of Forth, though the position was very isolated.

From 1930, when it became a public assistance institution, it was known as Abden Home, and remained so known into the 1980s. It has since been converted into private flats.

Records are held by Onfife.
