Abernethy Pictish Tower is just 5 minutes from Newburgh.

Examples of rural architecture are also documented.

Fife and PerthshireFife and Perthshire: Including Kinross (Pevensey Guide S.) This guide covers a varied landscape area that is accessible to the highly populated Central Lowlands of Scotland, including the great cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Human endeavour, coupled with a proud colourful heritage, is evident everywhere, in the pretty and historic coastal towns such as St Andrews, in the rolling Lomond Hills and scenic Loch Leven, and, moving further north towards the higher ground, in the mountainous areas around Pitlochry, where the autumn colours have to be seen to be believed. Visits to the area are addictive, causing many to return again and again to the ancient "kingdoms" of Fife and Perth, legendary birthplace of the heartland of Scotland, for further exploration and pleasure.

The Perthshire Book This collection of essays is the story of Perthshire, Scotland's heartland, where many of her greatest treasures are to be found. The district resonates with folklore and incident; it was the birthplace of Rob Roy and also inspired some of Scott's finest work.

Fife: Enter the Kingdom (Luath Guides to... Fife) From the world famous golfing town of St Andrews to the picturesque coastal villages of the East Neuk, from the Forth bridges and the traditional industries to the archaeology and the land, Fife has seen great change over the centuries, yet retains many traditions.

Topics covered include: background history of all areas mentioned; sites of archaeological interest; the history of mining; walking in Fife; and useful visitor information.
