Cottages on West Green Lane in Culross, Fife, Scotland.

On the left, the orange building is part of Culross Palace.

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.
