Cupar Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Kingdom of Fife...

Cupar was formerly the county town of Fife. It developed as an administrative centre and also had a thriving agricultural market. In 1975, Glenrothes became the new county town and in 1994 the local market was closed.

The town still has many interesting buildings including the 17th century Preston Lodge, the similarly aged Chancellor's House (birthplace of John Campbell who became Lord Chancellor in 1859), the Corn Exchange and the Duncan Institute (built in 1870).
