The Park

Pittencrieff House
Pittencrieff House

Pittencrieff Park has been the centre of Pittencrieff Estate for most of its history. The grand house, landscaped gardens and ancillary buildings were typical of many a Scottish estate. Less so are the medieval ruins on its fringes and the relics of World War 2 defences and shelters.

Since the purchase of the estate in 1903 by Andrew Carnegie, the grounds have become a public park. It’s historic character has long been celebrated and this summer’s field school is just the beginning of an exploration of the archaeological riches of this beautiful landscape.
