Milnathort

Situated on the A91, the main Stirling to St. Andrews road, Milnathort is an attractively maintained small town with a long history. It was developed as a market town and as a community of wool and linen weavers; flax was widely grown in the County until the 1st World War, and in 1880 there were 129 weavers in the Parish of Orwell which includes Milnathort.
Milnathort Town Hall The now ruined Burleigh Castle, built in the 15th century stands just outside the town on the A911 and a little further along the same road can be seen the Standing Stones of Orwell, two large whinstones which stand proudly in a field at the side of the road.
A gentle walk around Milnathort gives the visitor a feeling for the history of the town.
The 9 hole golf course has lovely views over Loch Leven and the Lomond hills.
