Cobbles In Culross.

By Tooma
Still in Culross (pronounced Cooross), in Fife. This charming wee cobblestone street is typical of the older part of the town, which sits on the north side of the River Forth, about half a mile east of the Kincardine Bridge.

".. is an almost perfect example of a Scottish burgh of the 17th and 18th centuries. Many of the houses are of that period and the crows' feet gables, pantile roofs and narrow cobbled streets are typical of that time. The "Town House" in the centre of the town is particularly fine."

"A number of the buildings are now owned by the National Trust for Scotland including the "Palace". This was built for Sir George Bruce, a wealthy merchant and industrialist in the 17th century. The Palace is particularly attractive both because of the painted wooden ceilings and as the National Trust have filled it with furniture of the 17th and 18th centuries.".

That is what stuck in my mind when visiting Culross is the cobbled streets and white-washed buildings. Very picturesque.
