Once named ‘The Most Attractive Village in Scotland’, Ceres has retained much of its olde-world charm. Life revolves around the well-maintained village green, where the church steeple towers over weavers’ cottages with pantile roofs and the humpbacked Bishop’s Bridge is a picturesque reminder of the days when horse and cart was the only method of transport in Ceres.

On the last Saturday in June, Ceres Games take place on the village green. The oldest Highland Games in Scotland, Ceres Games were started by Robert Bruce to thank the men of the village for their contribution to the Battle of Bannockburn.

Nearby Teasses Estate has a long connection with Ceres and the surrounding area. Today, this busy working estate offers a range of activities, including traditional country pursuits and opportunities to admire sixty acres of beautiful landscaped gardens.

To find out more about Fife’s villages, farms, estates and countryside, cross the Bishop’s Bridge to Fife Folk Museum, which gives a fascinating glimpse into two centuries of rural life.
