Earthship Fife Visitor Centre
Earthship Fife Visitor Centre is Scotland’s first Earthship, and indeed the first in the UK!  It is in an idyllic position overlooking Kinghorn Loch in Fife.

An Earthship is a passive solar building with thermal mass. This means that it maintains a comfortable living temperature year round.  It is made from natural and recycled materials - predominantly earth-rammed tyres and aluminium cans. It is powered by renewable energy, such as wind, water and solar power.  It catches its own water supply from rainwater, and treats and contains its own sewage in planter beds.

Earthships are a concept, not a set design.  They can be adapted for any climate worldwide. Earthships offer people the opportunity to build their own homes and make a conscious decision to live lightly on the earth.

The Earthship Visitor Centre is open every Friday for drop-in visits, from 11am - 2pm. Refreshments and information available. Guided tours are available on request. Please see our website for further information:

Come on a guided tour; browse through the small library of eco-building books and videos; have a hot drink powered from renewable sources
and contemplate what it would be like to live in a house with no bills.

(Please phone or check our website to confirm opening times)
