Birkhill is the family home of the Earl and Countess of Dundee
in Birkhill, Cupar in Fife. It is located on the shores of the river
Tay a short distance from St Andrews.
Set on the coast in North East Fife, Birkhill was built in 1780.
The house is surrounded by gardens with rare trees and plants. Lord
Dundee is the Hereditary Royal Standard Bearer for Scotland. His
ancestors carried the Scottish Banner for William Wallace and Robert
the Bruce. Bruce later appointed the Standard Bearer and his successors
as custodians of the City of Dundee which lies just across the Tay.
