Kemback Parish Church, Dura Den

A small village in E Fife, Kemback is situated 2½ miles (4 km) east of Cupar to the south of the River Eden.

Although the parish of Kemback has ancient associations with St. Salvator's College in St Andrews, the village was largely created during the 19th century for those working in the flax mills that were powered by the adjacent Ceres Burn which flows down to the Eden through the deep wooded Dura Den gorge. It was thus also known as Kemback Mills.

Kemback Primary School closed in 2005.
