Kirkcaldy (1860)



It is unnecessary to follow this aspect of the great revival further. Important work was done in Pulteneytown, the suburb of Wick. Later in the spring the flame was carried to the shores of the Fifth of Forth. In March and April it was burning brightly in the fishing villages of Cellardyke and Pittenweem, and had extended to Kirkcaldy. On the opposite coast, Newhaven was embraced in March, and the Eyemouth fisher­men lit the torch at Dunbar whence the light spread to North Berwick and Cockenzie.
