A parish in NW Fife which stretches from Newburgh on the Firth of Tay to the Loch of Lindores.

It includes the village of Lindores and the hamlet of Grange of Lindores, and in its churchyard near Grange of Lindores is a 7th-century Pictish symbol stone. Buried in the same churchyard are John Bethune (d.1839) and his brother Alexander (d.1843) who are remembered as local poets.

There is also a monument to Sir Frederick Lewis Maitland (1777 - 1839), captain of the British warship HMS Bellerophon which took the defeated Napoleon on board in 1815 prior to his exile in St Helena.
