These images show the devastation a huge blaze inflicted on a historic Fife building.
Silverburn House, located in the heart of the 27-acre Silverburn Park in Leven, has been all but destroyed by the inferno that broke out just after 6am on Tuesday.
Eleven fire appliances, a command and support unit, ambulances and the police were all called to the scene and spent much of the day dealing with the fire.
Silverburn House was used as accommodation for Polish soldiers during World War II but had fallen into disrepair in recent years.
There were long-term plans to transform it into a conference centre and community hub as part of the wider transformation of the park. Locals have vowed to push on with efforts to revamp the much-loved park.
The estate was gifted to Fife Council by the Russell family in 1973 and was once considered one of the region’s crowning glories.
A lack of investment over the last two decades saw it reduced to a rather tarnished jewel but a five-year plan by Fife Employment Access Trust to restore it was approved in 2014.
On Tuesday a spokesperson for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service described the incident as a “major fire”.
The park, which borders the Fife coastal path and has large areas of woodland, was cordoned off and part of the A915 was closed to allow emergency services access.
