    North East Fife is a diverse and beautiful constituency, taking in Levenmouth, the Howe of Fife, the East Neuk, the royal burgh of Cupar and communities on the south banks of the Tay. It is home to Leuchars Army and former RAF base. St Andrews is the home of golf. It is also home to St Andrews University, Scotland’s oldest university, established in 1413.


    The university is the area’s major employer. My constituency’s other industries include tourism, farming, agriculture and our vital fishing communities. One area that combines a number of these is the growth in distilleries in the constituency that are providing both produce and visitor attractions. Our whisky distilleries and North East Fife’s increasing number of gin distilleries, such as Eden Mill, Pilgrim’s, Darnley’s of Kingsbarns and Lundin Links.

    I am delighted to see that the reinstatement of ​the Levenmouth railway is now moving forward. This will see one of the local communities that is most poorly served by public transport properly connected to the central belt of Scotland. I commend the work of the members of the Levenmouth Rail Campaign for their efforts in this regard.

    Me and my casework team have dealt with over 20,000 constituency cases since January 2020 and continue to support constituents across a range of local and national issues and personal concerns. 

    People are at the heart of all the Communities and are very engaged with local issues, such as the removal of services, including cash points and post offices, access to Banks and local amenities. 


    Rural poverty, geographic isolation, travel links, caring responsibilities, health and wellbeing, cost of living, education and environmental issues are concerns brought to me.


    Lack of affordable housing in North East Fife also continues to be very challenging.
