Get behind the scenes of some fascinating buildings in East Fife & St Andrews this September.
"Built in the early 1860’s at the north west end of Lindores Loch this is a very rare and charming example of its type. On display will be original artefacts associated with this Scottish sport and this particular venerable club’s history, some very spectacular, and also beautiful hand-written club books dating back to 1831."
Park beside Dunbog & Abdie Church on road between Lindores and Grange of Lindores, and follow the markers.
Access from car park is approx. 400m around a farm field and over a style therefore stout shoes / boots are essential.
This has been a religious site for over 400 years, the current clock tower providing a distinctive landmark since 1794. Now the Auld Kirk Charitable Trust is developing an Arts and Heritage Centre in the building. Learn about the bold plans for the future and also explore the graveyard, with its carved slabs reflecting local history and industry.
The Bell Pettigrew Museum is a rare survival of a Victorian teaching museum, and wonderfully atmospheric. It houses a large natural history collection including examples of rare and extinct species.
The third ecclesiastical structure on this ancient site, sacred since medieval times, Collessie Church stands at the heart of this picturesque village. Members of the congregation will welcome you throughout the afternoon. Also view inside the 1617 tomb for the Melville family. Free leaflet.
Diverse art by local artists will be on exhibition and for sale in the church.

Housed in two 19th century cottages beside the Tolbooth the museum has a special exhibition on Crail in WWI. Discover the history of the Royal Burgh, learn about Crail Golfing Society from 1786, read Farming Memories and about Crail Airfield; WWI to the Cold War.
The Crail Walk leads off at 2.30pm on which you will learn the non-visible history of this ancient Burgh through its stones, streets and beautiful harbour.
During its 800 year life Crail Parish Church has been subject to many alterations all reflecting the history of the church and the Royal burgh around it. The kirkyard has been likened to Westminster Abbey for its famous burials.
