This is a beatific village and walking around it is like walking back in time. The buildings are well preserved and it is fascinating to walk around and look at the old architecture. You can also walk to the pier next to the railway track. There’s a car park on the west side and you can walk into the village along the path at the railway line or through the park. A brilliant place to visit!

For such a small village there is so much to see and discover here. The stunning, ochre coloured palace is obviously the main, eye-catching attraction, but if you are fortunate enough to visit the Mercat Cross when there are no cars about - it’s like stepping back in time.

There are so many other old buildings to admire as well,as monuments, churches etc. And there are great coastal walks too.

Whenever we come to Fife we visit “Cooris” - and we are always enchanted.

The village is absolutely beautiful - it is like stepping back in time. The palace is quite amazing and is a must see. The gardens are very impressive built up, as it is, on many terraces. The guide ( Michael Pitt ) is the font of all knowledge! We met him on the way to the palace and he gave us so much information about the history of the village and its former inhabitants. 5 stars to Michael and the National Trust for Scotland .

We visited this area last week on the recommendation if a friend and we were not disappointed. There's a unique little pier to walk along, not to mention cobbled streets to wander and an Abbey and church too to visit. Lots to see and many places to visit all within close distance of each other. A real must to visit if you are in the area. X

This is a beautiful spot by the Firth of Forth. There are free car parks at either end of the village, and Culross Palace is right in the middle. Wear walking shoes, as the cobbled streets are rough. Make sure you go alll the way up the hill to the Abbey, it is a stunning ruin with amazing views. Also do visit the palace, it is really interesting with beautiful gardens. We spent a lovely morning walking around the streets and alleyways.

This is a must, it is a well kept historic village, it sends you back to experience the old Tudor times. Also a must if an Outlander fan as scenes were shot here but so has a lot of films and you can see why, the Abbey is at the top of the hill. The palace looks so old and a weird orange colour but wasn’t open when we went.

I think that Culross is one of the most visually exciting places in Scotland. Culross is such a lovely place that gives you the feeling of being transported back to the 16th century. A beautiful city with charming streets. Many of the narrow cobbled streets, walls and houses are still,in their original form, which helps add this place the authentic flavour of the place.Walking these streets makes you try to imagine what life could have been here about three or four hundred years ago. It's quite an amazing and pleasant feeling.Absolutely beautiful and picturesque place. A real gem and full of history. Culross is great place for a day trip. Definitely worth a visit.

The town trail is i would say the best we have done and is now my favourite. So much history and now due to Outlander romance? as well. One of the highlights of our trip to Fife certainly Do Not Miss this place if in the area. The narrow streets that are cobbled can be a bit tricky to navigate if your party have mobility issues. Also Culross can be a bit hilly depending on where you go.

Absolutely loved our visit to this gorgeous, unspoilt village (pronounced 'coo russ'). We walked along the pier when we first arrived then picked up our timed tickets for the palace. I also bought a copy of the National Trust for Scotland Culross guidebook which was very useful for the palace visit and a guided walk around the village. We will be visiting again next year.

The National Trust for Scotland do an excellent job here. The palace is really well run and preserved with the wee film at the beginning very informative. The cafe was great - such friendly efficient NTS staff.
