This year is due to see a reawakening of Abbot House, a beautiful ‘A’ listed building dating back to the 16th Century. Situated within Dunfermline’s heritage quarter, the building is steeped in the rich history of Scotland’s ancient capital. The house is instantly recognisable by its colour and is known fondly as the ‘pink hoose’ by locals. The renovation project will see the building transformed into a cultural hub and a 'go to' centre for visitors seeking tourist information and advice on Dunfermline and the surrounding area.
