Get behind the scenes of some fascinating buildings in Fife this September.
This distinguished Inverkeithing building faces what used to be the market place. It retains its 18th century internal layout, including prison accommodation on the ground floor. The current 1755 steeple by John Monroe, which replaced an earlier 17th century structure, housed a bell from 1667 by Johannes Burgerhuys. This can be seen in the town’s museum in Queen St.
Up to 1975 Inverkeithing Burgh Council met in the Chamber Room and the top floor was the local court presided over by a Justice of the Peace.

West Fife's only underground attraction! A geological feature, once isolated from historic Dunfermline, is said to be the retreat for the religious Queen Margaret Canmore over 900 years ago.
(Photograph shows the cave before it was covered by a car park. Traces of carving, including a stone bench and barholes, survive on the inside. The cave is now only accessible through a tunnel.)
A guide will welcome you before you step down into the earth. You will experience literally the atmosphere and depth of Dunfermlines history as you descend. Numbers restricted to 20 at any time.
Please note that there is no disabled access.
The 14th century building was remodelled in the 17th century as a tenement and converted into a museum in the 20th century. The Hospitium was originally built by the Grey Friars (Franciscans).
A warm welcome awaits you to this ancient Friary building - the best example of its kind in Scotland.
Members of Inverkeithing History Society will tell you of its rich past. Enjoy the lovely garden with fine aspects over the town to the Forth.Image (c) www.scran.ac.uk
