Royal Burgh of Culross
Culross Palace, Culross, Dunfermline KY12 8JH, UK
Royal Burgh of CulrossUnder 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.
