Capelochy Castle (site of)
Capelochy Castle was a castle on the Fife coast although nothing of it now remains.
The lands of Caiplie are mentioned in 1235 when Richard de Beaumont gave all the land of Caiplie and three oxgangs of land in the field of Ratheruch to David, son of Hugh White of Haddington.
In 1488 the lands of Caiplie were split into two unequal parts, the upper or over and the lower or nether. The lower two thirds remained known as Caiplie, Capelochy or Netherton of Caiplie, while the upper third became known as Over Caiplie, Thirdpart of Caiplie or simply Thirdpart.
