AROUND 3,000 visitors descended on Culross last Sunday for one rather Outlandish day.

Outlander fans and budding historians tasted the flavour of the Jacobite era as the Outlandish Living event, inspired by the hit TV series, arrived in Culross.

Along with the Culross Village Fete and Farmers’ Market, the Outlander Filming Fife group organised the event which hosted homemade crafts, Gaelic sessions, live music from folk band Boorach, and historical characters roaming the village detailing its past.

Whisky-tasting sessions were also on offer from Clan MacKenzie Routes.

Linn Williamson, chair of the group, said: “Everybody that attended was extremely impressed. There were so many Outlander fans wearing either t-shirts or tartan.

“We had people from all over the world. We heard that some friends from people who attended were jealous that they weren’t able to come over and see the locations from the show.”

Tim Collins, chairman of Culross Community Council, and part of the organising team for the day, was delighted at the record-breaking attendance and the feedback from both visitors and vendors.

He said: “It was an absolutely superb day with a record number of visitors.

“I was speaking with the vendors of the stalls and they told me that they had completely sold out before the day ended. The previous year they had stock left to take home but not this time.

“It wasn’t just the stalls at the market that were successful either, the village was so busy and local cafes were packed.

“I spoke to people from all over who all thought it was wonderful.”

Money was raised on the day for the pier at Culross which has fallen into serious disrepair.

While the online crowdfunding donations are being processed, a collection bucket at the pier collected “a few hundred pounds”, said Tim.
