Scope and Content View of Market Cross, Marketgate, Crail, Fife Crail was created a royal burgh in 1310, with a royal castle just to the east of the burgh. Fishing was the main industry in the town throughout its history, but this declined during the 19th century, and the town now relies on tourism. This is Crail's market cross which stands in Marketgate beside the tolbooth. The present cross was re-erected on this site in 1887 and comprises a 17th-century shaft with a 19th-century base and unicorn. The original site of the cross is not known. The town developed around three medieval streets which still exist today relatively untouched. High Street and Marketgate run through the centre of the town, and Nethergate runs parallel to the shore. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
