Dunfermline Abbey

Visit the final resting place of many Scottish kings and queens.

The final resting place of many Scottish kings and queens, Dunfermline Abbey holds a special place in Scotland’s history. It was founded as a Benedictine cloister in the 11th century by Queen Margaret (later canonised at Saint Margaret), richly refurbished in the 12th century by her son David I, rebuilt in the 14th century following serious damage and then left mostly to ruin after the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century.

Today, the wide nave still stands largely intact and is the most visually stunning example of Romanesque architecture in Scotland. To the west of the old cloister stands the Dunfermline Palace, built just after the Reformation, which was the birthplace of Charles I, the last monarch to be born in Scotland.
