    Fife Arms Hotel

    The Fife Arms Hotel is a country Inn built in 1770 and overlooks the market Place of Turriff.
    This became famous as the location of a riot in November 1913 when an attempt was made to sell the "Turra Coo" a white cow that had been seized from a local farmer for non-payment of National Insurance contributions.
    Eventually the cow was purchased by the towns people and presented back to the farmer - the cow living on to a ripe old age.

    The museum has a permanent display of local history, including many old photos of the town.
    One of the locals is always on hand to give you a free guided tour, but brush up on your Scottish dialect first though!
