Craigflower House, is a former mansion located at the east end of Torryburn village, Fife, Scotland.
The present house with its crowstepped gables and corner turrets was remodelled from the remains of a 17th century Laird’s house in Scottish baronial style by David Bryce in 1862. Alison Cunningham, the nurse of Robert Louis Stevenson, was born here in 1822.
Originally a private residence, it spent the best part of the 1900s as a prep school before being converted into 12 separate flats in 2002.
