Excerpt from The Gentleman's Magazine, Vol. 280: January to June, 1896
Not that that worthy burgh was at the time we are speak ing of destitute of such evidence of civilisation. It was accessible by means of a line which, meandering leisurely round among the coast towns of Fife, came in due course to Leuchars, and thence, while proceeding on its way to Dundee, sent a kind of back-handed offshoot to reach, in such circuitous fashion, the remote and secluded seat of learning. Travelling thus, you arrived there from Edinburgh (according to one highly respectable authority) in a space of time only slightly longer than that in which you might have walked it.
