A northeastern suburb of the town of Leven on the south coast of Fife, Scoonie takes its name from the parish whose church was granted to the Culdees of Loch Leven by Tuadal, Bishop of St Andrews in the 1060s. Abandoned in 1769 when a new parish church was built in Leven, the ruins of this church lie in a cemetery adjacent to the A915 road to Largo. There is a golf course and bowling club.
