Fife KY3 9YE

King Alexander III (4 September 1241 – 19 March 1286) was the last Celtic King of Scots from 1249 to his death 1286. Alexander III, then aged 44, was returning on horseback to be with Yolande at Kinghorn Castle after meeting his Council in Edinburgh. It was after dark and the weather was very bad when he came along the cliff road above Pettycur. It is believed Alexander's horse stumbled, and pitched him to his death over the cliffs.
