Visit Colinsburgh and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Colinsburgh, Fife. This village was founded by and named after Colin, 3rd Earl of Balcarres, about 1705, on his return from fighting in the Low Countries during voluntary exile for the Stuarts. He established the village for the soldiers who had fought with him, and he built it at the gates of Balcarres House, the seat of the Lindsays. Balcarres House dates from 1595, but was largely altered in the mid-l9th century. The formal and box gardens are second only to those at Drummond Castle.
The folly or tower on Balcarres Crag to the North West is a notable example of 19th century architectural eccentricity.
