Dunfermline and West Fife

Dunfermline

Formerly the capital of Scotland, Dunfermline is steeped in extraordinary history. 

Take a step back in time and visit Dunfermline's Heritage Quarter which brings the town's fascinating history to life.

Dunfermline Abbey is a fascinating place to visit and is the final resting place of King Robert the Bruce as well as 11 other Scottish kings and queens. The Abbey is just a short walk from the beautiful Pittencreiff Park (known locally as The Glen) which was gifted to the town by Andrew Carnegie. It's a real oasis in the middle of the town with tranquil woodland walks which are great for wildlife spotting, beautiful formal gardens, playparks and of course the resident peacocks!

Dunfermline is also famous for being the birthplace of world famous philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. You can learn more about his interesting life and work at the Andrew Carnegie Birthplace Museum.

Don't miss a visit to the award-winning Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries which tells the history of the town and hosts lots of interesting exhibitions throughout the year,  Have a go at bringing Dunfermline's history to life at the Royal Gallery by downloading the new In The Footsteps of Kings augmented reality app which is sure to keep the kids entertained! 

If you're looking for some evening entartainment the Carnegie Hall and the Alhambra Theatre have a mixed programme of events including traditional favourites like the Christmas panto and big names from the stage, screen and music. There's also a thriving live music scene and the Outwith Festival in September is well worth a visit.
