Culross is the most complete example in Scotland today of a Burgh of the 17th and 18th centuries. Visit the Palace Garden which has been reconstred using features that would have been found in an early 17th century garden. The 6th century house used by Bishop Leighton as his study and The Abbey which was restored in 1633 and holds the Bruce Vault in the North Transcript which has a fine alabaster monument to Sir George Bruce, his wife and eight children.
