Tour Pittenweem, East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. Pittenweem is fishing village on the East Coast of Scotland.

Tour St Andrews Cathedral, Kingdom of Fife, Scotland. The ruins of the Cathedral of St Andrew, at one time Scotland's largest building, originated in the priory of Canons Regular founded by Bishop Robert (1122 - 1159). It was not completed and consecrated until 1318 in the reign of Robert the Bruce (1306-29). The Cathedral and its associated conventual buildings were sacked and became ruinous after the Reformation in 1559. At the end of the 17th century, some of the priory buildings remained entire and considerable remains of others existed, but nearly all traces have now disappeared except much of the defensive Priory wall, with its towers and gates. To the west of the Cathedral, the 14th century main gateway into the Cathedral precinct, known as the Pends, also survives.

Tour Stanley Mills, Perthshire, Scotland. Stanley Mills is probably the finest surviving example of an Arkwright cotton mill and a very important remnant of Scotland’s Industrial age.
