Preston Lodge, Cupar: A large 17th century house standing in the Bonnygate. It is roughly square on plan with two little wings projecting southwards. It is now four storeys in height but the roof has been raised and is not original. The older entrance, a Renaissance doorway of the late 17th century, is in the north wall. A triangular pediment at the west end of the house bears the date 1623. This was the town house of Preston of Airdrie in the parish of Crail.

RCAHMS 1933.
