Burntisland Annual Heritage Exhibition 2017

The annual exhibition for 2017 will be 'BURNTISLAND'S GIFTS AND TREASURES'.

Over the past 24 years the trust has been fortunate to have been gifted large collections of photographs, paintings, drawings, prints, maps and scrapbooks. Many of these will be on display in this year's exhibition.
Burntisland is also very privileged in having more than its fair share of prized possessions and lost riches, from the town's priceless medieval and historic churches, to the story behind the lost treasure of King Charles 1. All of these and much more, reveal and illustrate in this informative display what the town has to offer from its fascinating past to the present day.

The exhibition is housed at Burntisland Heritage Centre, 4 Kirkgate, Burntisland (just round the corner from the main door of the Burgh Chambers in the High Street). Also available for viewing and browsing are videos and large collections of other types of historical material relating to the town's fascinating history.

Mary Somerville's permanent childhood home was in Burntisland.
Her image will appear on the new Royal Bank of Scotland £10 note when it enters circulation later this year.

The amazing achievements of Mary Somerville complement the theme
of the 2017 summer exhibition, which will showcase the many gifts and
treasures, past and present that the town has to offer.
