Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Cupar Fife



Tour Scotland travel Blog video of old photographs of Cupar, Fife, Scotland. The town is believed to have grown around the site of Cupar Castle, which was the seat of the sheriff and was owned by the earls of Fife. The area became a centre for judiciary as the county of Fife and as a market town catering for both cattle and sheep. The historic town centre is the junction of Bonnygate and the Crossgate. This is where the town's mercat cross, is located with the original shaft being supported by a unicorn. It dates from 1683. To the east is St Catherine Street, home to the burgh chambers and county buildings, both designed by Robert Hutchison. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
