  • A magnificent historic Abbey which is entwined in the history of Dunfermline and Scotland. A must see for visitors to Dunfermline. Always a nice place to walk around, very close to all of the town's amenities but very peaceful. Next time you are walking nearby, take a short detour through the grounds and you can almost feel the history.
  • Wow, so beautiful. The guide was very informative but I found him hard to hear.
  • 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.
  • Great piece of Scottish history,very interesting and informative,
  • Really interesting to see the old abbey still standing. Theres a really interesting tour as well that you can take round tho old grounds.
