Dunfermline, in the Kingdom of Fife is the ancient capital of Scotland and has a long and interesting history.
Malcom III established Dunfermline as a seat of royal power in Scotland in the 11th century and his wife created a church here that developed in to the Abbey under her son David I. It became the resting place for Scottish kings, including Robert the Bruce.
The Abbey is a great example of a church from this period with much of the original stonework in good condition, the Palace although now a ruin gives you a feel for life in a royal household in medieval Scotland.
The town of Dunfermline is also famous as being the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie and you can visit the small cottage that he lived in until he moved to America.
