Cupar Muir


A village in the parish of Cupar, NE Fife, Cupar Muir lies between Cupar and Springfield.

It was once associated with the quarrying of stone and more famously with a confrontation in 1559 between the French troops of Mary of Guise (mother of Mary Queen of Scots) and the forces of the Protestant Lords of the Congregation. A truce that ultimately led to the withdrawal of the French was a turning point in the Reformation struggle.
