Scope and Content Gyles House, The Gyles, Pittenweem, Fife Gyles House was built in 1626 and is part of The Gyles, a group of 17th- to 18th-century buildings standing on the headland at the east end of the harbour. It was the home of the Captain Cook who took King Charles II to exile in France in 1651. This shows Gyles House (right) after it, along with the rest of The Gyles (left), was restored in 1962 by Wheeler and Sproson for the National Trust for Scotland. King Charles II, an exile since the defeat and death of his father, King Charles I, returned to Scotland in 1650 to lead a Presbyterian uprising. He was defeated at Dunbar in 1650 and at Worcester in England in 1651. He then fled to France. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
