Scotland’s ancient capital Dunfermline is absolutely steeped in history with its abbey founded in 1128, which was once the burial place of Scottish monarchs, not least King Malcolm Canmore, his wife Queen Margaret and Robert the Bruce.

It is the birthplace of Andrew Carnegie, a handloom weaver’s son who went on to become one of the world’s richest men and one of mankind’s most prominent philanthropists.

The striking Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries is a great place to explore this history – or simply enjoy views over the abbey and gardens in the popular café.

The town is popular with visitors from cruises which stop in Rosyth nearby, many of whom enjoy local restaurants the handsome Garvock House Hotel with its oak paneled dining room.

Those looking for a more hands-on experience might want to look into booking with Courses for Cooks, with experienced cook Jenny Thomson.
