Scottish NT take care of this, original and humble palace. Delightful, informative staff/volunteers, no photos in the house but plenty to explore and information to absorb. Beautiful painted chamber a major highlight. Wonderful terraced garden that has so much colour, an orchard, and that incredible...More

This palace is well worth a visit, it is very interesting and you can walk round the gardens. We bought apples from an apple tree that was over 100yrs old and they were delicious.

I walked in the Culross Palace Gardens on my last day and it was wonderful - a rich selection of herbs, flowering plants and fruits, with a touch of wild garden. Many levels to explore and great details in the timber seats which give great...More

Worth a visit. Beautiful. Like stepping back in time. The guides were full off knowledge and very welcoming. Stunning village to walk around as well. The cafe beside the Palace is great.

Centuries of Scottish history in a conservation village on the Firth of Forth. Very worthwhile visit with a lot of insight into Mary Queen of Scots & the Stuart dynasty. The village itself is lovely as is the garden. Full of 'Outlander' fans too.

Enjoyed visiting the palace and the attached gardens. Not a royal palace but a well preserved gentleman's home.

A wonderful building and small garden in a town steeped in history and all so beautiful on the river. It is easy to loose a couple of hours walking around!

Superbly preserved building originating with pre-industrial coal mine owners in the middle of a C16 village of great medieval religious significance. Atmospheric set of rooms giving a good idea of life four hundred years ago. Excellent period gardens too. The reproduction textiles by the local...More

You can just walk around the village but to get into the Castle you have to have a ticket.
