The town of Culross, pronounced "Coo-ros", (Gaelic: Cuileann Ros) is a former royal burgh in Fife, Scotland.
According to the 2006 estimate, the village has a population of 395.
Originally the town served as a port city on the Firth of Forth and is believed to have been founded by Saint Serf during the 6th century.
Culross has one of the oldest harbours in Scotland. It was a busy harbour in the 16-17th centuries but the pier may well have been in existance much earlier.

A legend states that when the British princess (and future saint) Theneu or Enoch, daughter of the King of Lothian, fell pregnant before marriage, her family threw her from a cliff. She survived the fall unharmed, and was soon met by an unmanned boat. She knew she had no home to go to, so she got into the boat; it sailed her across the Firth of Forth to land at Culross where she was cared for by Saint Serf; he became foster-father of her son, Saint Kentigern or Mungo...
