Join us to plot a route through Strathmiglo, one of Fife’s premiere ‘linen villages’. Explore heritage and contemporary design as we walk and talk.
About this event
Welcome to Strathmiglo, one of Fife’s premiere ‘linen villages’, and a new heritage and design Walk taking flax and linen as its theme. We assemble at GH Cook & Son, now a Joiner’s Yard, formerly the Skene Street Linen Factory, built in the 1850s.
We walk past cottages once inhabited by hand-loom weavers, and flats converted from the linen factory. We pass over the River Eden and the slope of former bleach fields. Today, all these sites have been redesigned with new purpose in mind. Join us for this walk and talk, to hear more, and to share your thoughts. We complete our walk at The Strath Tavern for refreshments.
This walk is part of the inaugural Flax and Linen Festivals Scotland from Journeys in Design. Our Festival Hub in 2021 is in Kirkcaldy with events taking place throughout Fife.
