Local Historic Attractions:
St Mary’s Church pictured to the left dates from the early 1600’s and can be seen from the castle. The Dairsie Bridge is also worth a look, it was built by James Beaton between 1522 and 1539. The castle and surrounding grounds (pictured right) are a landmark in themselves and well worth exploring.
Fife is famous for its Coastal Path walk which stretches 150km. However there are very pleasant walks in and around Dairsie with country roads leading to Cupar and St Andrews and the castle itself sits in 6 acres of grounds, with wooded areas.
