Dunfermline Fife

Dunfermline for hundreds of years the capital of Scotland, to the North and before Edinburgh has in the confines of the Cathedral the remains of Scottish Royalty and others notably Robert The Bruce. The largely 19th century rebuild after the Reformation incorporated the ethos of The Church of Scotland and is free of the outer elements of Catholicism and other sectarian obliques, it now presents a sparse interior except for the rich stained glass windows. The remains Robert the Bruce lie within under the Pulpit.
