Cowdenbeath Guide


In the east of Scotland lies the small town of Cowdenbeath. It is situated 18 miles north of Edinburgh and five miles east of Dunfermline. Cowdenbeath is southwest of Lochgelly station on the railway from Dunfermline to Cupar. Once a mining town, it now supports a range of industries.

We advise you to hire a car during your stay, unless you travel to Cowdenbeath in your own vehicle. The surrounding lands have such fantastic viwes that it is worth having your own vehicle to see it all.

If you like stadiums then Central Park is located in the centre of Cowdenbeath and has an impressive athletics track around the football pitch. It is one of Britain's fastest tracks while the site is the most northerly speedway circuit in Britain. The Cowdenbeath Leisure Centre is next door with a swimming pool and loads of other facilities. Take a walk to the Public Park, situated just north of town and enjoy a picnic.

For shopping you must visit the High Street which runs through the city centre and has a variety of shops, such as the Raith Centre where you will find a pharmacy, pet shop, butchers and café. There's a good choice of food and shopping along the High Street and every Thursday there is a market held in Central Park.

Several motorways run near to Cowdenbeath so it is easy to find. The A92 Fife Regional Road runs from the M90 motorway in Dunfermline to Kirkcaldy. The M90 motorway runs between Edinburgh and Perth. At Bridge Street in the eastern part of town is where the A92 bypasses with an intersection.

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
