Levenmouth is a conurbation comprising a network of little settlements upon the north side of the Firth of Forth, in Fife on the east coast of Scotland. It consists of three principle coastal towns; Buckhaven, Leven and Methil, and a number of smaller towns, villages and hamlets inland. The industrial towns of Buckhaven and Methil lie on the west bank of the River Leven, and the resort town of Leven is on the east bank. The “Bawbee Brig” links the two sides of the river. Historically, Buckhaven and Methil were associated together as one burgh, while Leven was separate. The Place had an estimated population of 37,238 in 2006.
Levenmouth’s economy has traditionally been focussed on heavy and established industries and has struggled economically since the postponement of its coal mines. The main employers are Bi-Fab, Diageo, Donaldson Timber, Pfaudler Balfour and Silberline.
