Culross lies off the main roads through Fife in Eastern Scotland, but it's well worth going out of your way to make a visit. Whilst Edinburgh is the city with the best preserved collection of buildings from the 17th century in Scotland, Culross could argue that it is the best preserved small town of that period.
This is only a short walk, but it will leave some strong impressions.
There are opportunities for longer walks, using the Fife Coastal Path which starts here, and some of the other paths around Culross, although I didn't have time to check these out.
- I will remember most the remarkable collection of historic small town architecture
- The best bit was fitting in this short walk on a normal working day
- The worst bit was having only a short time to explore the town
- Next time I'll find some of the other paths
