Tour Scotland Inverkeithing Friary

Tour Scotland Inverkeithing Friary, Fife, Scotland. The late medieval building which was part of the claustral ranges of the Franciscan friary in Inverkeithing. This is one of the few remnants of a house of the Greyfriars to have survived in Scotland. In the garden behind the museum, some stone vaults survive which were probably storage cellars associated with the friary.

The Battle of Inverkeithing, 20th July 1651, was fought in this area of Fife, close to Pitreavie Castle, during Oliver Cromwell's invasion of the Kingdom of Scotland following the Third English Civil War. This is considered of great importance to Clan MacLean, and the 20th century poet Sorley MacLean mentions Inverkeithing in one of his poems. The Russian admiral Samuel Greig was a native of Inverkeithing.
