First Trip of the Year

The weather looked better in the East so headed out that way, via the Falkirk Wheel, across the Kincardine Bridge and on to Culross in Fife.

This 16th/17th century village is a Royal Burgh of Fife and is home to just under 400 people. It has a Palace which has been restored to its original mustard colour and narrow cobbled streets edged by white, pink,yellow, blue, green or grey houses and cottages.

This early 17th century house was restored by the South of Scotland Electricity Board for use as a substation:

Some houses have 3 or 4 storeys and most have the crow-step gable ends on the red tiled roofs for which Fife is famous:Grey House B&W flickr

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is a particularly good coffee shop, the name of which escapes me, with a very quirky back garden:
