We visited Dunfermline Abbey by train from Edinburgh over the Forth Rail bridge. This was a lovely trip with views of the Forth road Bridge. Unfortunately, the Abbey was not signposted from the rail station, so we walked up a fairly steep hill towards the town. When we got to the town, we walked to where we believed the abbey to be, and you guessed it, down another fairly steep hill. We realised on the way back that if we had walked along another street outside the station, we could have walked to the Abbey on level ground. However, once we arrived at the abbey, we were not disappointed. The abbey was impressive, with Robert the Bruce name constructed at the top of the square tower. I had never seen anything like this before. The inside of the abbey, the burial site of Robert the Bruce, is a well maintained church in beautiful condition. the old abbey is connected to the church. After your visit here, visit the abbotts house, a pink painted building, for tea, scones and a friendly smile. Have it in the herb garden outside on a good day, it is very serene, with a view of the square tower.
