Creich Castle North Fife July 2009

Today the weather was idyllic in north fife, warm with very slight occasional showers that were no bother. I visited Creich Castle to to take a closer look at a Chilean Pine nearby which from a distance appeared to be in flower. An illusion as it was weather damaged foliage. It did put me closer to this very historically important dwelling.

From the drive way to Creich farmhouse which is available for holiday lets.

The rear still shows some of the well crafted stone masonry though the more accessible from lower down has long been recycled.

Right next to the house and castle and other working farm buildings stands this Doocot which was home to hundreds of pigeons, the young of which were an important food supply before intensive sheep and cattle production.
See the historic importance of this castle.
