A village in a parish now linked with Flisk, Kilmany and Monimail, Creich lies in the hills of north Fife, to the northeast of Brunton. The surrounding woodlands were once the hunting grounds of the Earls of Fife and within a farmsteading stand the ruins of a doocot (1723) and castle once occupied by the Beatons of Balfour, hereditary Stewards of Fife. Mary Beaton of Creich was one of the 'four Maries' who attended Mary Queen of Scots. To the east is the ruined 14th-century St Devenic's Church of Creich with its 16th-century aisle.
