Culross Palace and gardens

Culross Palace and village

A view of Culross from the top of Culross Palace gardens. I love this view and hope to visit when the garden is in full bloom. The village gets really busy during the summer, the times I’ve visited have been in the off season where if you’re lucky it feels like you almost get the place to yourself.

This was quite a tricky picture to do as I’m looking into the sun over the village that puts the palace into shade. The yellow paint of the palace is the highlight of the picture so it took a bit of luck to de emphasise it.

A small sketch of Thomas Cochrane, 10th Earl of Dundonald that’s directly in front of the palace. He lived an incredible adventurous life in the royal navy then after being disgraced left to lead the navies of Chile, Brazil and Greece on their claims to independence. Its well worth looking him up for more info.
