Itinerary

When does my tour start?
Tour time will be set to fit in your preferred time and ship's arrival/departure time.

When do I return to port after my tour/excursion?
The tour is 6 hours in length and your itinerary will be subject to change in order for you to be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure.

This is a small group tour

After being picked-up from the port, your day starts by going over the iconic bridges of the Firth of Forth and over to the ancient burgh of Culross. This ‘time capsule’ village highlights include the 1597 Palace, restored to its original mustard yellow render and wooden shuttered condition complete with a "hanging garden" with wicker fences leading up the slope behind. 

The 1626 Town House is also a showpiece. However, what really sets Culross apart as special is the way such a large part of the village is original, with narrow wynds (including the evocative and probably once descriptive "Stinking Wynd") and stunning buildings. Here you can begin to see what a 16th century village might really have looked like.

From there we go slightly north to the 17th century town of Falkland. Falkland nestles between the two Lomond Hills in the Howe of Fife. It is most well known for Falkland Palace. This royal dwelling was once the country residence of the Stewart kings and queens as they hunted deer and wild boar in the forests of Fife. Built between 1501 and 1541 by James IV and James V, the palace has some of the most exceptional architecture of its time in Britain. It is also home to one of only two 16th century tennis courts in Britain (the other is at Hampton Court in England).

Basic Itinerary:

0900 – 1000 Drive to Culross

1100 – 1230 Culross visit (Outlander/Palace) (1.5 hours) 

1230 – 1310 Drive to Falkland

1310 – 1510 Falkland visit (Palace/Outlander/Lunch) (2 hours) 

1510 – 1610 Drive back to the port
