We had great difficulty in finding our way into Dunfermline because of the road building involved with the new bridge across the Forth but once we got there the Abbey was easy to find.
The abbey is known for its history but probably most noted as the resting place of Robert the Bruce, minus his heart! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the abbey but were not impressed with the town.
I have many fond memories of visiting Dunfermline when I was a child but I have to say that this time round the town was a disappointment to me. It seemed really scruffy.
There is a trail in Scotland that takes you to places of importance in the life of Robert the Bruce and this would seem to be a good suggestion for future trips.
This is the last Tuesday travels from our trip in 2012. The next lot of travels will be from our trip in 2010.
