The Kingdom of Fife
The Kingdom of Fife. An illustrated architectural guide to the kingdom of Fife, in all its rich diversity. the best-selling guide to the Kingdom celebrates its rich diversity, its unique geography and stormy history. With nationally acclaimed historic burghs – Dunfermline, Culross, Falkland and St Andrews – the rural acres of west Fife, the Leven and Ore valleys, the fertile Howe of Fife and the East Neuk, there is much to explore and enjoy for the tourist and the local enthusiast.
Buildings range from the hermit’s cell to the cathedral, from weaver’s cothouse to royal palace and from horsemill to power station with anecdotes from such celebrated commentators as Sir Walter Scott, Boswell and Johnson, Daniel Defoe, Robert Louis Stevenson and John Buchan.
The history of these changes is recorded in the richness and variety of the architecture of the Kingdom. Famous architects are well represented, Sir Robert Lorimer and Reginald Fairlie on their home territory, their contemporaries Sir Rowand Anderson and Peter Macgregor Chalmers and great predecessors like William Burn, David Bryce, James Smith and Sir William Bruce. The Kingdom of Fife: An Illustrated Architectural Guide (RIAS Series of Illustrated Architectural Guides to Scotland).
