From north or south on the M90, exit and turn east at junction 5. At the T-junction, turn left then first right in about 200 yards and follow the tourist signs (brown and white) for "The Scottish Gliding Centre". This takes you along the B9097, skirting the south side of Loch Leven, then the B920 towards Scotlandwell village. You will find the club entrance with this signboard on the left approximately one mile before the village.
For more local visitors the A911 Glenrothes-Milnathort passes through Scotlandwell - turn south for about 1 mile at its junction with the B920 and the club is on the right.
The most convenient railway station is Inverkeithing on the main
Edinburgh-Aberdeen line which is about a 20-minute taxi journey away and
has a frequent train service. A larger town at about the same distance is
Dunfermline which has more facilities and is on a local branch line with a
less (though still fairly) frequent train service.
