Kilconquhar Castle

Kilconquhar Castle Estate and Country Club, spectacularly located on the East Coast of Scotland, and just a couple of miles from the charming village of Elie in the ancient Kingdom of Fife – and 15 minutes from St Andrews – is the most idyllic resort imaginable.

The castle itself dates back to the 13th century and was the ancestral home of Adam of Kilconquhar, Earl of Carrick, whose son was the great Robert the Bruce, restorer of Scottish Liberty, who spent much of his life in residence.

It later became the property of the Earls of Dunbar and March, and in 1528 was sold to the Bellenden family where it started life as a 16th century tower house.

Culross Abbey

Haunted Culross Abbey

Culross AbbeyCulross Abbey is a fine example of a former Cistercian Abbey in Culross. It was headed by the Abbot or Commendator of Culross.

It’s still used as the local parish church by the Church of Scotland.

The abbey was founded in 1217 by Malcolm I, and was first colonised by monks from the Kinloss Abbey.

Culross may have been chosen to establish an abbey because this was the birthplace of Saint Mungo.

It is evident that the abbey was built over the earlier Pictish church – supposedly founded by Saint Serf in the 6th century – as witnessed by the presence in the ruined Cistercian church of early medieval carved stones.

Dunfermline Palace

This is somewhat a strange one; as I clearly have memories, of the tales, with regards to Dunfermline Palace being brought up in Fife and having a keen interest in such reports.

Looking through the usual places on-line, gives no indication that the tale I know, has been recorded; for others to read and share. Maybe a native from Dunfermline, or its surrounding villages, can jump in with their memories of this area and help further enhance what I am about to reveal.
