Royal Burgh of Culross

Culross is Scotland’s most complete example of a 17th-century burgh, featuring white-harled houses, cobbled streets, a hilltop abbey, and an ocher-colored palace. Visitors can wander along the charming streets, once filled with the hustle and bustle of a thriving port on the River Forth, then explore Culross Palace, with its tiny rooms, connecting passageways, and painted ceilings. You can even buy freshly grown herbs, fruits, and vegetables from the organic palace garden while visiting with the rare Scots Dumpy hens. One of the most picturesque villages in Scotland, Culross has served as a regular shooting location for the TV series Outlander.

Royal Burgh of Culross

Under the guidance of Scotland's National Trust, the once-decaying 16th-century royal burgh has become a conservation village—"a three-dimensional document" of a prototypical Scottish town between the 16th and 18th centuries. With narrow alleys, cobbled streets and restored crow-stepped whitewashed buildings, it is convincing: Visitors feel as if they've stepped back in time. Fans of TV's Outlander will recognize this as the fictional village of Cranesmuir.
