Macduff's Castle

A little to the east of the village of East Wemyss stand the remains of a fifteenth century castle, popularly called Macduff's Castle, because supposed to have been built by Macduff, Maormor of Fife in the reign of Malcomn Canmore. While this castle was not his, he had seats in the vicinity, and his direct descendants in the thirty-first and thirty-second generation, of the name of Wemyss, are still living in the village. The ruins of the castle consist of remains of two rectangular buildings at the top of a steep sandstone cliff a hundred feet above the sea. They have not been occupied since the middle of the seventeenth century.
