The town of Cupar lies near St Andrews towards the eastern end of Fife. With so many towns of note in the county, it seems an odd choice for county town, but so it is. The town lies on the River Eden and has a busy shopping centre with some fine buildings. A Business Park lies to the east of the town, which is surrounded by fertile farmland. Cupar is close enough to Dundee to be in the commuter belt, and indeed St Andrews where the fame of the University has helped push property prices up considerably.
The main road through the town is the A91, which starts way to the west in Stirling and crosses Fife to St Andrews. Despite the road being a busy route, it still runs down the main shopping street without a bypass. At the western end of the town, the A913 heads north west, to the River Tay and provides the most direct route to Perth. In the town centre, the A914 heads south west to Glenrothes, with the A916 forking off to the left to Methill and Buckhaven on the coast. The A914 is the original route of the A92, until the two routes were swapped so that the A92 avoided several villages as well as Cupar.
East of the town, the A914 reappears after a short multiplex with the A91 and heads north to meet the A92 for the Tay Road Bridge and Dundee. The only other classified road in the town is the B940, which heads south east and crosses the county towards Crail at the far eastern end.
