Dunfermline is a town situated just 20 km north of Edinburgh across the Firth of Forth. It’s also a popular home town for many people working in the city providing much more affordable living.
Dunfermline is famous for it’s Scoto-Norman monastic architecture represented by the Dunfermline Abbey. Originally built between 1128 and 1150, it was partially destroyed in later years and re-built again in 19th century.
Just across the cemetery we’ve found another historical highlight – the Abbot House. The oldest secular building in the town (15th century) has been turned into a lovely cafe.
Dunfermline also has a fantastic park with a centre piece from 1610. It’s called Pittencrieff House and serves now as a gallery and an exhibition space.
