Dunfermline located a 13 miles from Edinburgh has been a Kevstours destination for many a year. The poulation is around 50,000 and is the tenth largest in Scotland. Certainly one of our favourite scottish towns. Steeped in history about 3 miles from the Firth of the Forth. Places of interest include Dunfermline Palace and Abbey, Andrew Carnegies Birthplace,Pittencrieff house museum, The Scottish Vintage Bus Museum to name a few. On our visit this may we spent time not only at the convention but spent a great morning visiting and exploring the Abbey and Palace ruins and grounds as well as the current part which houses the tomb of the legend that is Robert the Bruce. There is indeed tombs and graves for at least 10 Scottish royalty.
The Pittencrieff area boasts a huge park with stunning flowers and Fawna. Monuments and the Glenn pavilion where many Scottish musicians have played including the late great Stuart Adamson. There is a memorial bench for Stuart in the garden close to the Glen. This has become a focal point for many a group of Stuarts fans over the years. And will be visited by us when we go back there in May 2018 for the 1st skids convention. http://www.the-skids.com After going there this may we are excited to say the Skids will be doing it again next year.
