Dunfermline - Fife, Travel Britain

If you are looking for a base to tour Scotland or you would like the peace
and tranquility of the beautiful Scottish town then please pay Dunfermline
Town a visit. Its well worth it.

Dunfermline Town is situated 5 miles from the shore of the Firth of Forth
estuary which is bridged by the famous Forth Rail and Forth Road Bridge's. A
visitor cannot spend ten minutes in Dunfermline Town without gravitating to
the history soaked walls of the old Dunfermline Abbey Church and becoming
chastened and subdued by the contact. With its rich background teaching the
lessons of Dunfermline's history, its own thrust and energy creating a
prosperity more marked than that of its neighbours, in surroundings of great
natural beauty providing further evidence of an especially favoured
community, Dunfermline Town, ancient seat of the kings of Scotland, has it
all.

Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen are only a train ride away
from Dunfermline and the central highlands, which offer the best ski-ing in
the UK, are only two hours drive from Dunfermline Town. Population 40,000
