Paid a visit to this stunning wee village at the west end of Fife. Steeped in history, albeit mostly local stuff where you can visit the famous Culross Palace (which isn't really a palace) and the equally historic Culross Abbey. Must say it is quite a walk uphill to the Abbey, there are limited car parking spaces there unlike the... More

This is a good way to experience some of the history of the area. The staff in the palace are very knowledgeable and are happy to give an interesting talk about the rooms you visit. There's several cards giving links to scenes from Outlander as you wander around. The gardens are quite something to see and even in October they... More

We discovered this little palace on a raining day, decided to go and explore. So glad we did, lots of interesting things to see and the guides were very knowledgeable. Don't wait until it's raining.

As NT members a visit to Fife would not have been right without a trip here. Fantastic old building in a village that takes you back in time, and with a mining history. One can see why it has been used in many films and TV series, it is perfect. Once again, well done National Trust.

Charged £10 per adult to visit an old house with nothing in it, think they just call it a palace to try get people to pay money to go see it but it's definitely not a palace!! Plenty of people around to take money and show you how to get in but no one around to tell you anything about... More

This was much better than I had expected from looking at the National Trust for Scotland website. There was a really informative introductory film which explained the history of the town. The palace itself was much larger than I had expected it to be and was beautifully preserved. We were lucky to meet with a very knowledgeable room guide and... More

This is a delightful village,where many of the original homes have been lovingly restored and saved with help from National Trust, the 'Palace' is very interesting, the volunteer guides very knowledgable, a must see if you are in the area!

The Palace is one of the most interesting National Trust places we have visited. A good guide explains what you want explaining, and the gardens are terrific. Well worth the unplanned trip (suggested by family who were on an Outlander tour)

Loved this place! The village has been restored to the way they built it in the 17 hundreds. The palace is a stunning mustard yellow colour, totally beautiful. Each room looks warm and cosy, you get a feel of how they lived back in the day! Outlander was filmed in a good part of the palace, they have put posts... More
