Ladybank is a town and former burgh of Fife, Scotland. It is about 37km north of Edinburgh, 8km southwest of Cupar, close to the River Eden. Its 2006 population was estimated at 1,582.HistoryBefore the 18th century, this area was mostly marshland. In 1247 Roger de Quincy, 2nd Earl of Winchester granted the monks of Lindores Abbey the right to cut peat from a peat-moss called Monegre, to which monks gave the name Our Lady's Bog (the southwestern part of the village is still called Monkstown). Over time this name was shortened to Ladybog.When the Edinburgh and Northern Railway was constructed in the 1840s, a junction was built here with lines heading towards Perth and Dundee. An engine depot (of which only the disused locomotive shed survives) and a railway station were constructed at the junction. The station was named 'Ladybank Station' rather than 'Ladybog Station', and the village that developed around the station took the name Ladybank. The Fife and Kinross Railway, which opened in 1857, used Ladybank as its eastern terminus further increasing the importance of the station. Ladybank railway station remains largely unaltered, and may be the oldest unaltered station in Scotland.Plan your holiday in Ladybank and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our United Kingdom (UK) travel itinerary planner.
