Crichton Castle is located on a terrace overlooking the River Tyne. It is a 14th-century tower house, one of the oldest built in Scotland with a remarkable great hall and a diamond-faceted facade, added by Francis Stewart around 1580. Nothing quite like this was built anywhere else in Scotland.

The Private House Stay's Guide


The southwest of Fife was built on Coal and linoleum and other industries that are much run-down whereas the prosperous-looking rural northeast couldn't be more different. Northeast Fife consists of St Andrews and the East Neuk and this is the area to see. The East Neuk of Fife is a string of beautiful old fishing villages. Other destinations worth a visit are Falkland, Cupar and the Howe of Fife. Here, you'll find Falkland Palace, one of Scotland's most remarkable historic buildings. The Fife Coastal trail is a favourite amongst walkers. For the purposes of dividing Fife, the Private House Stays categorisation of attractions, lists all attractions East and South of Cupar as being part of the East Neuk villages.
