Tour Scotland Video St Serf's Tower And Church Dysart Fife



Tour Scotland video of St Serf's Tower and Church on ancestry visit to Dysart, Fife, Scotland. Dysart is a location for the filming of Outlander. The remains of the church are thought to date from the early 16th century, but the first church in Dysart was dedicated to St. Servanus or Serf, the 8th century holy man who took up residence in a nearby cave, a place of religious retreat called in Latin a " deserta ". The name Dysart came from this, corrupted and mis-spelt over the years. A church on this site was re dedicated by Bishop David De Bernham on the 26th March 1245. The Tower appears to have been added at a later date, probably in the 1540s when the English were raiding the east coast of Scotland.
