The farm of Westfield was a creation of the large-scale changes on Nuthill and Falkland Estate undertaken by the Bruces after 1820. It forms a foursome with Annfield, Chancefield and Summerfield, all created in the same period.

    At this site a field called The Long West Owre is marked on Falkland Plan/1757. No buildings are marked on the site on Ainslie/Fife (1775). Buildings are marked but not named on the site on SGF (1828).

    Two stones carved with Pictish symbols were discovered at NO2384 0372, during demolition of part of the steading of Westfield in 1971 (DES 1971, 21).
