This month we’re shining the spotlight on Cupar, an old market town to the north of the Lomond Hills, in an area known as the Howe of Fife.
Cupar has a rich history dating right back to the 7th or 8th century which you can explore with a wander round the Cupar Heritage Trail which has 24 places of interest. During the summer months you can visit the Heritage Centre at the Railway Station.
If the weather is good Haugh Park is a lovely spot to spend some time and if you need refreshment or retail therapy Cupar has some lovely Independent shops, cafes and restaurants. There is also a regular Farmers Market on the third Saturday of the month.
There’s a great selection of events in and around Cupar throughout the year. In the town one of the highlights is the annual Highland Games in June which includes all the traditional activities from highland dancing to pipe bands to tossing the caber. The Cupar Arts Festival is an international festival of contemporary art which takes place every two years. The 2016 event included visual art, music, poetry, puppets, food and more!
There are also lots of places to visit close to Cupar, from golf to historic houses to a mega maze! Why not take a trip to this lovely part of Fife and explore for yourself.
