  • Great piece of Scottish history,very interesting and informative,
  • Lots of history, a beautiful Abbey and the staff were incredibly helpful. I was graced by a seagull out side and they were kind enough to let me clean my shirt in a private room. It's the stories that make a place.
  • Really interesting to see the old abbey still standing. Theres a really interesting tour as well that you can take round tho old grounds.
  • Very interesting site, if you can catch the early morning light, the stones of the ruins look amazing.
  • If you love history, this place will satisfy your curious mind. Mostly in ruins today, what remains of Dunfermline Palace and Abbey is a silent witness of a time and a place, of Scottish History and lots of its kings and queens.This place, still today, conveys the power, the glory and the efforts of Scotland as a country. Do not miss out on the Abbot House, a pink old building quite close that tells you the story of Dunfermline and that is free.
