St Serf's Church - in ruins - Dysart, Fife

St Serf's Church - in ruins, Dysart, Fife, Scotland

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 much later.

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.
