The Stables Visitor Centre opened in October 2017 following a sensitive restoration and redevelopment of an historic stable block dating from 1760’s. Cambo Heritage Trust are grateful for the support of a huge number of funders and donors including Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Environment Scotland to enable this fantastic redevelopment.

Cambo Gardens History

Cambo Estate lies on the east coast of Fife, 7 miles south of St Andrews. The present day estate, which has been in the Erskine family for over 300 years, dates from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. It is included in ‘An Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland’ as an important example of a picturesque, model estate.

The buildings within the landscape include the stables, carriage house, coach house, mausoleum, walled garden, dovecote, lodges and 2 model farms, listed by Historic Environment Scotland.
