Culross, Fife

Culross, Fife, Scotland

This evening, I am presenting a collection of images taken recently at Culross, a colourful and enchanting small town dating back to the 17th century and now under management of Scotland’s National Trust. There are some 20 buildings owned by the Trust including the impressive Palace. The town is characterised by red tiled (pantile) roofed houses which line the cobbled streets. There is also a ruined abbey dating back to the 13th. century.

The Palace features high quality, painted woodwork, barrel vaulted ceilings and an interior virtually unchanged since the 17th century.

The local wealth was derived from coal mining and salt extraction.

A fascinating site at any time.  Views of the Firth of Forth (waterfront)  adds an extra dimension
