Long Description:
The gardens are attached to the palace and included in the price of admission. Climb to the top tier and view the ocean as well as the rest of the burgh. The National Trust of Scotland maintains the property. Enjoy lunch at Bessie's Teahouse. Hike up the wynd to the abbey. The website gardenvisit.com (http://www.gardenvisit.com/garden/culross_palace_medieval_garden) describes the garden in the way:

"The walled garden is behind the house, on a south-facing slope with grand views over the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh and the Lothians. The planting has been re-created, very sensibly, as a late-medieval food and flower garden. The upper rim of the garden, with the best views, has been treated, equally sensibly, as a herber where the ladies of the house might have relaxed in warm weather."
Cost of entry: 10.00 (listed in local currency)
