Saline and Steelend Community Council Welcomes You
Working to serve our community
Saline and Steelend is located just 6 miles from Dunfermline, 17.5 miles from Stirling, 28 miles from Edinburgh and 38 miles to Glasgow. Set in the shadow of Saline Hill, it offers much for those wishing to escape from the hustle of urban life yet still remain close enough to commute.
Saline and Steelend Community Council welcomes you to our web pages.
There are a variety of facilities available for people of all ages to enjoy, and we hope our website helps you connect with those that are important to you and bring you information of what our delightful village has to offer.
Saline Primary School
Saline Primary School is the only primary school in Saline and was initially built in 1875, with additional builds being added over subsequent years. The school serves the villages of Saline and Steelend plus numerous farming families within our catchment area. The aspect of the school and the education experiences on offer, are enhanced by the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and by the Ochil Hills to the North. The majority of our pupils walk to school with the children from Steelend and the farming community travelling by bus
Saline & Blaringone Parish Church
Saline and Blaringone Parish Chirch serves the people of our West Fife rural parish comprising the villages of Saline, Blairingone, and Steelend, together with other settlements and farms. It now linked with the Parish of Tulliallan and Kincardine. We are led in worship by Rev Alec Shuttleworth.
There are historical references to a church being established in Saline before 1249, but the oldest known church building remains are of a church in the old graveyard in Bridge Street dating from 1640 or possibly earlier. That building was demolished after completion of the current church in 1811.
Saline & District Heritage Society
Saline & District Heritage Society was founded in 2011 being jointly sponsored by Saline and Blairingone Parish Church as well as Saline & District Community Council. The Society aims to research, gather and make available historical documents, artefacts and other items of historical interest which relate or have a connection with Saline, Steelend and wider District.
Saline First Responders
For those of you who are wondering what First Responders are – here is a short explanation. First Responders are volunteers who are trained by the Scottish Ambulance Service to attend medical emergencies within the “footprint” or local area. It is therefore hoped that with well trained, well equipped Responders we will be able to reduce potential deaths/complications within our community.
