Artist's Description

Cottages on the corner of Mid Causeway and Low Causewayside in Culross, Fife, Scotland.

The cottages (Numbers 20 and 22 Mid Causeway) date from the 17th Century and have white harling, Crowstepped gables and red pantiles on the roof. No 22 (on the left) was converted from an early 17th century house to an electricity substation for the South of Scotland Electricity board by I G Lindsay in 1962.

Numbers 20 and 22 are Category B Listed Buildings (Ref:24009 and Ref:48819 respectively).

The town of Culross, pronounced “Coo-ros”, (Gaelic: Cuileann Ros) is a former Royal Burgh on the north shore of the Firth of Forth.

Originally the town served as a port city and is believed to have been founded by Saint Serf during the 6th century.

A legend states that when the British princess (and future saint) Theneva or Enoch, daughter of Loth the King of Lothian, fell pregnant before marriage, her family threw her from a cliff. She survived the fall unharmed, and was soon met by an unmanned boat. She knew she had no home to go to, so she got into the boat; it sailed her across the Firth of Forth to land at Culross where she was cared for by Saint Serf who became foster-father to her son, Saint Kentigern or Mungo.

Arguably the most picturesque historic town in Scotland. Its cobbled streets are lined with wee yellow houses topped by slanting red pantiled roofs which all contribute to giving you an illusion that you have stepped back two or three hundred years in time.
