Coach Trip to Culross & Dunfermline

The village of Culross is a former royal burgh in Fife, believed to have been founded by Saint Serf during the 6th century. Once a bustling 17th century port on the Firth of Forth, its quaint streets have been used as a film location for several films including Kidnapped, The Little Vampire, The 39 Steps, as well as many episodes of the TV series Outlander.
We have arranged an exclusive guided visit to Dunimarle Castle and Gardens, an 18th century mansion house which occupies a spectacular setting in an elevated position overlooking the Firth of Forth. It will take in the house, the grounds and St Serf’s Chapel.
