Dunfermline Palace & Abbey
Fife Coastal Route
Make a slight detour to Dunfermline Palace & Abbey for a wander around the towering historic buildings in the Abbey complex. Pause to admire the impressive Romanesque architecture of the nave before paying a visit to the place where King Robert the Bruce’s body is buried (his heart is buried at Melrose Abbey in the Scottish Borders). You’ll also see his name, ‘King Robert the Bruce’, carved in stone on the tower of the church. Close to the town, enjoy a round of golf at Dunfermline Golf Club or learn water skiing and wakeboarding skills at the Scottish National Water Ski Centre.
