Cults Hill

A prominent ridge in the very centre of Fife, Cults Hill offers panoramic views over the Howe of Fife to the north and the Lomond Hills to the west. It rises to 215m (705 feet) a mile (1.5 km) south of Pitlessie and 5 miles (8 km) southwest of Cupar. The hill is composed of Lower Limestone Measures, the same strata which outcrops at Charlestown, 22 miles (36 km) to the southwest. The limestone here has been worked since at least the middle of the 18th Century and the hill is undercut by extensive workings, disused since the 1960s. A large limestone processing works continued operations nearby until the late 1990s but now lie abandoned.
