Kilmany (Gaelic: Cille Mheinidh) is a village and parish in Fife, Scotland.

It is notable for being the birthplace of Jim Clark, former world champion Formula One racing-car driver. There is a statue of Clark in the village, unveiled in 1997 by Sir Jackie Stewart.[1]

It was also the home of William Anstruther-Gray, Baron Kilmany who served as Chairman of Ways and Means in the House of Commons from 1962-64 and later sat in the House of Lords after being made a life peer in 1966.[2].

Between 1909 and 1960, Kilmany had its own railway station on the Newburgh and North Fife Railway.[3]

The civil parish has a population of 218 (in 2011).[4]
