Dunfermline needs this tourist attraction to reopen.It is,arguably,the oldest house in this historic town.In the shadow of the Abbey,it was the Benedictines administrative HQ.The 1992 excavation dated the house with its tracery windows as 1460.Certainly it survived the Great Fire of Dunfermline in 1624.The excavation found coins from different centuries,clay pipes,animal bones,etc.The Guide superbly explained all this as well as... 更多
What a shame the Abbot House closed down earlier this year. It was a most interesting place to visit not to mention the cafe and brewery? Let's hope someone will see fit to raise the money to reopen this fascinating walk back in time?
I had marked this as poor...its now closed. Food wasn't great, neither was service. On reflection this expereince was in line with the indictaion that the centre was not going to continue to be open so possibly no buy in from staff at that point.
Disgusting that the most historic building in Dunfermline and one of the best in Scotland should have closed its doors on the 15th of August, while Fife council build a modern museum and cafe next door!
This is an interesting house and it has a lovely coffee bar and cafe. You can eat in the gardens with a view of Dunfermline Abbey. It is also useful for a toilet visit after a trip to the palace which has no facilities.

It is rather sad that a closure notice has appeared in the local press the cafe is a very popular meeting place for locals and tourists alike .The house itself is an important draw for tourists and I can only hope that when it reverts back to the Council and the Carnegie Trust it will be up and running again... 更多
Smashing wee gem of a place,with lovely cafe and gardens,but apparently Council is closing in the next few weeks,with uncertainty over fate of this beautiful building. Visit now before its too late.
