Newburgh North Fife Town Hall Steeple

Newburgh North Fife Town Hall Steeple centrally pierces the view of the River Tay and Dundee with the Sidlaw Hills beyond. The Sidlaw Hills lie to the north of Dundee and form a natural barrier between the Carse of Gowrie (and the River Tay) and the Valley of Strathmore to the north. Although not particularly high, Craigowl being the highest top at 455 metres, they command excellent uninterrupted panoramic views. The range stretches from Perth almost to Forfar. Newburgh Town Hall is now converted into workshop and studio spaces for artists. See Steeple Arts.

One of the oldest houses in Newburgh North Fife and one I have looked at in the past with interest bordering on covertness. I am told it was once a Nunnery and certainly it has a plethora of upper story small cell like rooms with a commanding view over the river Tay.
