John Knox's Pulpit


Glen Vale

Lomond Hills


John Knox’s Pulpit stands at the top of a captivating valley, Glen Vale, which is truly one of Fife’s hidden gems and a must-visit spot for photographers. As well as stunning views across and down the valley, a small waterfall tumbles from under the base of John Knox’s Pulpit, where there’s also a small cave, which is no longer accessible due to a major rock fall a few years ago.

Despite its name, the 16th century church reformer John Knox is never known to have preached from this bizarrely-eroded grey sandstone outcrop on the lower reaches of West Lomond. However, the valley John Knox’s Pulpit presides over is a natural amphitheatre where Presbyterian Covenanters held covert church services in the late 17th century.
