Despite being a small town, Newburgh offers plenty of treasures for visitors. Sitting right on the banks of the River Tay, this quaint village is a pleasant spot to explore.
Newburgh is home to the excellent Lindores Abbey Distillery and Visitor Centre, known as the 'spiritual home of Scotch whisky'. Lindores Distillery produces it's own 'Aqua Vitae', multi-award winning botanical spirit and has an incredible history. Take a tour, visit the cafe and gift shop or even have a go at making your own spirit!
Also of historical interest is Denmylne Castle, an abandoned 15th century castle once the home of the Balfour of Denmylne family. The ruins of Lindores Abbey are picturesque and you can still trace the ground plan of the whole structure. The monks who lived here were famous for their orchards, and these days many of the nearby houses have orchards with trees descended from the original plantings!
Newburgh is also home to the remains of Macduff's Cross, which (in legend) marks the spot where the clan Macduff was given sanctuary privileges.
In May, Newburgh is also one of the participating towns in Open Studios North Fife. During the event, you can visit the homes of many local artists and admire (and even buy) some of their work!
