Its population is in the region of 150,000 which makes it one the highest populated towns in Fife. In terms of tourist attractions, Dunfermline does have a few to offer!

The history of the town can be seen in detail by visiting Dunfermline Abbey and Palace, Abbot House and St Margarets Cave.

From a tourist's point of view, Dunfermline is one of Scotland's most historic locations with points of historical importance including the Dunfermline Abbey where Robert The Bruce is laid to rest, Abbot House just off the grounds of the Abbey and Andrew Carnegie's birth place museum is just down the street. The town offers plenty of things to visit and see as a tourist. If shopping is what your after, then this is where Dunfermline will let you down. They have the regular Asda and Tesco, and a few smaller supermarkets dotted around. There is also two small retail parks, one comprising of B&Q, Halfords, and a few other DIY type stores, and the other being ... Read the complete review

I've been living in Dunfermline for six months now, and I have to admit it's growing on me. It's also just plain growing - and fast. More and more people are moving outside Edinburgh in search of cheaper living, and there are always plenty of diggers to be seen around the town as the green belt grows steadily narrower. Dunfermline prides itself on being one of the oldest towns in the country - in fact, in days of yore, Dunfermline was actually the capital of Scotland. Must have been before they had cities... The town centre is small, and all the attractions are within walking distance of each other, but the surrounding areas are fairly ... Read the complete review
