Welcome to Culross


As the birthplace of St Mungo, Glasgow's patron saint, Culross was an important religious centre from the 6th century. The burgh developed under local laird Sir George Bruce by extracting coal through ingenious tunnels extending under the seabed. When mining was ended by flooding of the tunnels, the town switched to making linen and shoes.

We organise a "walk down" to the castle to allow you the opportunity to take in all the beautiful surroundings and other Outlander sites of interest. Please note that since Midhope Castle sits on a private working estate, and as such there may be times where access is denied out with our control and this is usually down to health and safety concerns if any dangerous activities are taking place on the estate.
