Buckhaven is a coastal town on the east coast of Fife, Scotland, on the Firth of Forth between East Wemyss and Methil. Its inhabitants sometimes refer to it as Buckhind or Buckhine.  Buckhaven was originally settled by Norsemen and the word Buckhaven is possibly a derivative word or a phrase from an Old Norse language meaning “roaring harbour”.
According to estimates in 2006, the population including Methil stood at around 16,240; however, the Levenmouth area including Kennoway, Leven, the Wemyss villages, Largo Bay and Windygates has a combined population of around 37,410. Buckhaven was the second-largest fishing fleet in Scotland with a total of 198 boats. Fishing declined during the 19th century, but in the 1860s Buckhaven developed more into a mining town. The fishing community of Buckhaven is said to have been largely the descendants of Norsemen who settled there in the 9th century.
