Culross (pronounced Coo-Ross we were told) is a wonderful seaside village that has changed very little from the 17th century. Except for the presence of cars, and the occasional bus driving along its very narrow cobblestone streets, you really can imagine yourself going back into...More

Beautiful historic coastal village with narrow cobbled lanes, a few cafes and a great pub. The Fife Coastal path runs through the old village. Excellent playground as well. Toilets are now no longer free to use. National Trust Scotland deserve great credit for the restoration...More

The NTS deserves a huge pat on the back for bringing this beautiful historic burgh back to life. We did the guided tour and thoroughly enjoyed it (two pounds, lasts about an hour and packs a fair bit in without being strenuous). Our guide, Alan,...More

Came here with the intention of visiting the palace, but never got that far. Great playground for a variety of ages, with a lovely outlook. Had lunch at biscuit cafe which was delicious. Will definitely visit again and hopefully go into the palace next time!

A good place to take primary school kids for an hour. Plenty other attractions in the village to keep older kids amused.

What a place. The whole toon almost has Dutch pantiles on the goof due to the Dutch offloading them as ballast before loading on fish and hides etc. Extremely well preserved toon.

Historic village to spend an afternoon in. Local shops, cafes, the palace, the abbey up the hill, one pub, 2 large carparks and a large play area for children with the cleanest public toilets I've ever seen (30p entry fee).

Highly recommend an afternoon visit with family. Streets were easy to walk and filled with history and character. Playpark near coast is small but fun for kids under 12. Beautiful village - many areas seemed untouched by time.

From parking in the free car park to wandering into the village this is an impressive place. It should be compulsory for kids and anyone who needs reminding how small towns and villages should be. A fantastic play area for kids lots of seating and...More
