Good day everyone.
Todays post is not going to be too long.
We left St Andrews and headed towards Dairsie. I wanted to go see Dairsie Old Parish Church and then Dairsie Castle.
After walking around at the Old Parish Church I got into the car to get the directions to Dairsie Castle. Google maps said I have arrived at my destination. The castle was next to the church.
Dairsie Castle is a restored tower house that is situated next to the River Eden. They started building the first castle on the property around 1298. The Scottish parliament was held in the castle in early 1335. The castle was rebuilt in the 16th century by the Learmonth family.
In the 17th century it was sold to John Spottiswoode (1565–1639), Archbishop of St Andrews, who built Dairsie Old Church next to the castle in 1621.
For more information on Dairsie Castle please visit their website. Today it is being rented out as a Self Catering Castle.
I asked the grounds keeper if I could take some photos of the Castle and she said it was okay I could take a quick walk around the garden.
Our next stop was Pittormie Fruit Farm. What I had in mind when I planned this stop was a big farm with fruit trees with a restaurant and farmstall. I drove past twice looking for the entrance to the farm. Dad spotted the sign when we drove past. It was a small little shop with handmade goodies. We bought some strawberries and something to drink and got back on the road to our next stop.
Our next stop was Thai Teak. I scheduled this as a tea break. When we arrived we walked around a bit and then headed inside for a lovely cup of tea.
Thank you for joining us on our Grand Tour of Scotland.
Our next stop is the beautiful Dundee.
Till next time, stay safe and healthy.
