The club is situated in the middle of Cupar in the Kingdom of Fife. The club has a large room in the old Castlehill School which is now part of the Castlehill Association - an association of clubs and groups that occupy and use rooms within the old school. The map shows the centre of Cupar and the clubrooms are accessed from the back of the building and up a flight of stairs. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate those that are not able to climb the stairs.

To find Club Rooms - Our club room is located in the "Old Theatre" block of the old Castlehill Primary School adjacent to Fife Council's Social Work Offices. The building is directly in front of you as you go through the gates. Access to the building is via a door at the rear. We are located on the first floor.

Directions to the Corn Exchange for our exhibition is again right in the middle of Cupar, at the T junction and at the bottom of Castlehill is 'Boots' and to the right is the Corn Exchange

Bill Scobie Trophy

Following the loss of our long term member and friend Bill Scobie in December 2003, we decided as a club to dedicate a trophy in his memory. Bill had an attention to detail that was second to none, and his passion for building layouts was obvious in "Feather River" our HO American layout, and "The Albula Line" an HOm Swiss layout which is now in private hands. The trophy is awarded by the club at our annual exhibition for modelling that is of a very high standard. The winner in chosen by a trader independent of the club, and is presented on Saturday afternoon.
