Collessie in postcards

Collessie is a village in Fife, Scotland.

It is a hamlet set on a small hillock centred on a historic church. Due to rerouting of roads, it now lies off the main road. Though a railway embankment was constructed through the middle of the village in the 19th century, it retains much of its original character, and has a number of traditional 17th-18th century houses. In recent years some of the older houses have been re-roofed in traditional thatch. Collessie in fact probably now has more thatched houses than any other village in the county of Fife.
