Culross Palace and Garden

Culross Palace and Garden

Culross Palace is not really a palace but a splendid merchants house dating from the late 16th century with a historic garden

The garden at Culross Palace has been restored and incorporates many of the features which would have been found in the 17th century. 
It is set behind the property on a slope and also has terraces with great views of the Firth of Forth.
The main garden is full of vegetables, herbs, aromatic plants,  flowers and fruit. There is also a small orchard with apple, mulberry, quince and fig trees. A flock of 'Scotts Dumpy' hens  roam here, much as they would have done in the 17th century.
Although the garden is not large it is well worth a visit and take time to visit the Palace too.
Editors favourite!
