 WHERE TO FIND GOOD ALE IN CULROSS'S BEST PUBS
THE UNICORN, 15 EXCISE STREET, KINCARDINE
Kincardine is about 3 miles west of Culross, and the location of two bridges over the wide River Forth. It does not have a great deal going for it on the tourist front, but it can nonetheless be very pleasant wandering around its streets admiring the varied forms of architecture on the old rows of houses. The Unicorn is a cut above everything else in the village, and a most agreeable well-run establishment. The bar of this 17th century coaching inn has a real fire, very comfortable seats, and bottles of good Scottish ale at hand. It was the birthplace of Sir James Dewar (1842 - 1923), the inventor of the vacuum flask and the first person to liquefy hydrogen gas. So there.
RED LION INN, CULROSS
The Red Lion Inn is a seriously cosy and snug old inn with real ale and food. Inside there are painted beams and lots of intriguing little bits to keep you interested while you take some fuel on board.
RAILWAY TAVERN, KINCARDINE
Okay, I know this pub is not in Culross, but The Railway Tavern is one of the finest, quaintest little pubs in Scotland, and as Kincardine's only a few miles from Culross then it's just a short hop away. Besides, if you're walking the Fife Coastal Path and starting in Kincardine, then chances are you might actually spend the night in Kincardine and as such you simply cannot afford to miss The Railway Tavern. The Railway Tavern in Kincardine probably has the smallest bar in Scotland. It also has a real fire and bottles of good Scottish ale. Without question this is one of my favourite pubs in all Scotland. A true gem, and not to be missed.
