Strathmiglo (Scottish Gaelic: Srath Mioglach) is a village in Fife, Scotland on the River Eden. It lies on the old A91 road from Milnathort to Cupar and St. Andrews but was bypassed by a new road to the north in the 1970s. The population is around 1000. Nearby settlements include Auchtermuchty and Falkland.

Strathmiglo is sometimes thought to have belonged to the Mormaers of Fife in early times. Before 1350 it had become the centre of the shire of Strathmigloshire. It became a burgh of barony in the 16th century, by which time it belonged to the Scotts of Balwearie. Prior to the Reformation it was the site of a Collegiate church. The village has several houses dating from the early 18th century.

The economic life of the burgh in early times was linked to nearby Falkland Palace. In the 18th and 19th centuries the textile industry was important, as was boot-making in the 20th. The tollbooth of 1734 is a prominent landmark and there is a Pictish stone by the cemetery. The latter probably dates from the 9th century and shows a pair of legs (with toes) and stomach above. The upper torso and head are missing as the upper part of the stone is broken and missing. The explanatory plaque inexplicably and impossibly describes it as a carving of "a tuning fork".

About Designer Frank Watson

Frank Watson was born and educated in Glasgow.  He attended Glasgow School of Art and graduated with a diploma in art and design. He now lives and works in the
village of Strathmiglo, Fife and has become well known as a townscape artist his
works are in many private collections both here in the UK and in Europe, America
and Canada.

I've had an interest in art life drawing and draughtsmanship since I was quite
young. I enjoyed drawing from life e.g. my own hands and facial features as well
as copying newspaper caricatures.

When I was about 13 I won a medal at the Glasgow School Children's art
competition and received my trophy at the City Chambers in Glasgow.

Aged about 17 I was selected to spend 2 weeks at Castle Howard near Dunoon.
This was an outdoor art course for Glasgow school kids who were showing some
potential in the subject.  Shortly after this, I submitted a portfolio of work
including sculpture, drawing and painting and pottery for entrance to Glasgow
School of Art - the famous Macintosh building and was accepted for the diploma
course. For the next 4 years the subjects I studied were:

Drawing and painting
Lino cutting
Interior design and decoration
Jewellery and silversmithing

After qualifying with a diploma I spent some time as a shopfitting designer and
went on later to work for a Glasgow architects office.  Latterly, I
joined Scottish and Newcastle breweries as an interior designer and spent many
years in pub restaurant and hotel design

All during my professional career I continued to produce sketches and
paintings and spent more time doing so as I approached retirement.  These days I
attend the craft fairs and have permanent shops in a number of hotels and
restaurants around Fife.
