Looking back on 2019
Published 3rd January 2020
Fife Historic Buildings Trust had a busy 2019. Throughout the year we had many exciting developments and we are looking forward to seeing what 2020 will bring us.
We are grateful to everyone who has booked and stayed in our holiday apartments, it has been a steady year of occupancy throughout Kinghorn Town Hall, John McDouall Stuart View and Cupar Burgh Chambers. Fife Historic Buildings Trust are always trying to improve the guests stays at the holiday apartments in Fife and have plans to ensure all future guests continue to have enjoyable stays. In July 2019 we saw the first anniversary of the opening of Cupar Burgh Chambers. We are all very proud of the work that has been put in and delighted to have had such a great response from all guests so far. The tail end of 2019, Kinghorn Town Hall had an internal refresh of paint, fixing the ceiling from water damage. We have availability for 2020 and beyond, if you would like to come and stay in one of our properties, please click here for more information, availability and to book directly.
