Royal Burgh of Culross




KY12 8JH




Relive the domestic life of the 16th and 17th centuries amid the old buildings and cobbled streets of the fascinating Royal Burgh of Culross.

Explore the beautiful refurbished palace with its decorative painted ceilings and furnishings of the period. Behind the palace is the restored 17th century garden, complete with herbs, vegetables and fruit trees.

Join our walking tours where you can also see the Town House, once the legal and commercial centre of Culross, and the Study, where Bishop Leighton of Dunblane reputedly composed his sermons. Our expert guides will also give you insight into the greater history of Culross from being the birthplace of St Mungo to the childhood residence of Admiral Thomas Cochrane (the "Sea Wolf", and the inspiration for C.S. Forester's 'Hornblower' character)

Outlander fans can see filming locations such as Geillis Duncan's parlour (The Palace's Withdrawing Room), Castle Leoch's herb garden (The Palace Gardens) and Cranesmuir's village square (The Study/Mercat Cross).
