Cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Culross is a jewel of a village – a living museum of 17th-century port life. Admire the white-harled houses that line the steep cobbled streets from the market cross to the hilltop abbey. Discover the charming ochre-coloured palace and its stunning reconstructed period garden, complete with herbs, fruit and vegetables.
The most complete example of a burgh in the 17th and 18th centuries, Culross is acknowledged as one of the most picturesque villages in Scotland - hence why it is so often used as a film and television location, including for hit US TV series, Outlander.
Get a sense of what it would have been like to live in Culross Palace in its prime, with original painted woodwork and beautifully restored 17th and 18th-century interiors.
The Town House, once the legal and commercial centre of Culross, is also open to visitors as is the Study, where Bishop Leighton of Dunblane reputedly composed his sermons.
Discover the most interesting places and most beautiful walks by purchasing a tour map of Culross from the Trust shop in the Town House, and make an Outlander pilgrimage by standing on the exact spot at Culross Palace where Jamie met Claire after her visit to Geillis Duncan.
