Aberdour has its own railway station which is on the main east coast line between Edinburgh and Dundee. The journey time from Edinburgh is approximately 20 minutes. In clear weather The Boathouse is a very pleasant 15 minute walk from the railway station, passing Aberdour Castle, St. Fillan's Church and the beach.
Alternatively, Inverkeithing Station is a 10 minute taxi journey away.
