St Serf's Church - in ruins - Dysart, Fife
St Serf's Church or Tower in Dysart.
This is the ruin of St Serf's Church or Tower a few yards from the
harbour in Dysart in Fife just to the east of Kirkcaldy.
Seemingly St Serf lived in a cave nearby which is now in the
grounds of a Carmelite convent. Of course he wasn't a saint until
Dysart is the birthplace of John McDouall Stuart (the Stuart Highway).
John McDouall Stuart was the guy who walked - with others -
across Australia from south to north and set out the route of a
telegraph line and the highway from Adelaide to Alice Sprigs
and on to Darwin.
It's now called The Stuart Highway in his honour.
There's a small but very interesting museum dedicated to him
in the village of Dysart.
The inner harbour and the Harbourmaster's House.
Tourist information, a gift shop and the inevitable café.
The harbour, including some interesting artwork, taken looking west.
