Great little town full of friendly peoples who are anxious to share their proud history. It you're an Outlander fan, you'll love finding all of the places where scenes from season 1-2 were shot.

Beautiful historic coastal village with narrow cobbled lanes, a few cafes and a great pub. The Fife Coastal path runs through the old village. Excellent playground as well. Toilets are now no longer free to use. National Trust Scotland deserve great credit for the restoration...More

Came here with the intention of visiting the palace, but never got that far. Great playground for a variety of ages, with a lovely outlook. Had lunch at biscuit cafe which was delicious. Will definitely visit again and hopefully go into the palace next time!

A good place to take primary school kids for an hour. Plenty other attractions in the village to keep older kids amused.

What a place. The whole toon almost has Dutch pantiles on the goof due to the Dutch offloading them as ballast before loading on fish and hides etc. Extremely well preserved toon.

Historic village to spend an afternoon in. Local shops, cafes, the palace, the abbey up the hill, one pub, 2 large carparks and a large play area for children with the cleanest public toilets I've ever seen (30p entry fee).
