The Royal Burgh of Culross - The National Trust for Scotland

Relive the domestic life of the 16th and 17th centuries at this riverside Royal Burgh. The old buildings and cobbled streets create a fascinating time warp for visitors. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the calls of 17th century street vendors selling their wares and the clang of hammers on metal as the Hammermen of Culross fashioned the famous girdles. Explore the beautiful refurbished Palace which dates from 1597 - imagine what it would have been like to live within the splendid interiors, featuring painted woodwork, and 17th- and 18th-century furniture. Take a wander around the reconstructed early 17th-century Palace Garden, perhaps meeting the Scots Dumpy hens. Also visit Bessie's Tearoom where you will find lots of yummy home-made treats. Shop Included in a visit to Culross Palace: Palace Town Tour Garden Bessie's Tearoom Shop
