Set in a 400 acre park, it was constructed around 1824 and designed by a leading Edinburgh architect, William Burn. The name is an English version of Kamperduin, a village on the North Sea coast of the Netherlands were the original owner, Admiral Adam Duncan defeated the Dutch fleet in 1797. The roof features a stained glass dome featuring in the centre Admiral Duncan's coat of arms proudly showing his gold medal.
When filming 'Whisky Galore', we scouted locations in Fife and decided to use the iconic St Monans as the right backdrop for scenes in the movie. FifeScreen was extremely helpful in making sure we were in touch with all the right contacts. It was a joy filming in Fife. The folks at the Council were flexible and patient with what we needed meaning we were able to turn filming around on a tight schedule. Am looking forward to going back.DAVID TAYLOR, Davie Taylor TV
