Visit Ceres and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Ceres, Fife. Often described as the “prettiest village in Scotland”, Ceres stands at the meeting- and crossing-places of old Fife highways. Lying, however, in its quiet valley undisturbed by modern traffic, it has retained its individuality.
It has managed to keep its village green (that comparative rarity in Scotland) and an old hump-backed bridge, with attractive groups of traditionally red-roofed cottages. One wall in the village shows built into it the statue of the Provost of Ceres of 1578; it was the work of a local man who also, it is believed, sculpted the left-handed piper on a cottage gable near the church. Games and horse-racing are held each year in Ceres; these are traditionally believed to commemorate the Ceres men who returned home after midsummer and from the victory they had helped to win at Bannockburn.
The old tiny Barony Court House became the weigh-house and has scales; “God Bless the Just” is carved over the doorway. The church on the hill contains the mausoleum of the earls of Crawford in what may be the remains of the old church.
