Dunfermline Abbey Fife Scotland [01:51]
Tour Scotland video of photograph of Dunfermline Abbey on visit to West Fife. Dunfermline Abbey is a Church of Scotland Parish Church. The church occupies the site of the ancient chancel and transepts of a large medieval Benedictine abbey, which was sacked in 1560 during the Scottish Reformation and permitted to fall into disrepair. Part of the old abbey church continued in use at that time and some parts of the abbey infrastructure still remain to this day. Dunfermline Abbey is one of Scotland's most important cultural sites. The Benedictine Abbey of the Holy Trinity and St Margaret, was founded in 1128 by King David I of Scotland, but the monastic establishment was based on an earlier foundation dating back to the reign of King Malcolm Canmore. Saint Margaret of Scotland was buried here in 1093; on 19th June 1250. King Robert the Bruce was buried, in 1329, in the choir, now the site of the present parish church. Bruce's heart rests in Melrose, but his bones lie in Dunfermline Abbey, where, after the discovery of the skeleton in 1818, they were reinterred with fitting pomp below the pulpit of the New church. In 1891 the pulpit was moved back and a monumental brass inserted in the floor to indicate the royal vault. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.

Fran and I traveled to Scotland in early June 2012 and we had many bonnie places to travel to. We met a lot of really great people locals and other tourists. Was a fantastic small week exploring Scotland and some of the highlands including the Isle of Skye. Side note: I'm a Gabaldon story addict. Was rather neat to see its foundations
