The recess was named after the original village of Dalgety, but the ruins of the 12th century St Bridget’s Kirk are anything that now mark the site. The extra town, building started in 1965, takes its proclaim from the main niche it adjoins, but the town stretches higher than many bays and coves including Donibristle Bay and St David’s Bay.
