Admire the towering defensive façade of a heavily fortified castle, originally built as a royal residence.
About Ravenscraig Castle
Ravenscraig Castle was begun for Queen Mary of Gueldres in 1460. But its time as a royal residence was short-lived, and the castle was soon granted to the Sinclair family.
The Sinclairs completed the castle, building its massive 3.5m-thick walls, showing the impact of gunpowder artillery on castle design.
Ravenscraig Castle is free to visit and open year-round.
Only the exterior of the castle can be viewed.
On the eastern outskirts of Kirkcaldy, off the A955 Dysart Road.
