Dunfermline Abbey

The western nave of the Abbey at Dunfermline was built by David I (son of Malcolm Canmore and St Margaret) in the 12th century, and the eastern part, the church, was added in the 19th century. King Robert the Bruce is buried here, as Dunfermline was the burial site of the Scottish monarchs before the adoption of the island of Iona.

The tower of the church bears the words 'King Robert the Bruce' and inside, beneath the pulpit is The Bruce's tomb, with it's fine brass cover.
