[River Eden at Cupar]

Cupar is Fife's former capital, an important crossroads and former market town set on the River Eden. This is no garden of paradise though. The town has a firmly down-to-earth feel - probably a useful hub for local residents, but tourists are probably better off heading to nearby St Andrews or Falkland. Meanwhile, Cupar just about scrapes its way onto this blog by virtue of a pleasantly bustling main street (Crossgate), striking yellow council buildings and a handful of more interesting attractions in the wider area.
