Road Directions

The 'auld grey toun' of Dunfermline is at the heart of Scotland's history and the royal and monastic past dominates the town. There are a wide number of historical venues such as the royal palace, a 12th century abbey (which is the final resting place of Robert the Bruce and the burial site of 11 other Scottish kings and queens), the restored 15th century Abbot House and the cave in which St Margaret bathed the feet of the poor.

King Malcolm Canmore established his court after the death of Macbeth at the now ruined fortified tower in the heart of Pittencrieff Park.  Dunfermline was the birthplace of James I in 1394, Charles I in 1600 and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie in 1835. Carnegie's birthplace, a humble weaver's cottage, has been preserved and extended to include a museum of his life.
