ABBOT HOUSE HERITAGE CENTRE Museums
You'll be tickled pink when you visit Dunfermline's award-winning Abbot House Heritage Centre. The most venerable house in Scotland's ancient capital is conspicuous not only for its authentic pink livery, but for its enchanting and atmospheric visitor experience.
For the better part of a millennium, pilgrims have beaten a path to Dunfermline's door. Today's visitors can still share the rich royal heritage of the capital of Fife's magic Kingdom. The volunteer-run Abbot House Heritage Centre - dubbed the 'People's Tardis' - propels the traveller through time from the days of the Picts ... a time warp peopled by a veritable Who's Who of characters from Dunfermline's past: Scotland's royal saint, Queen Margaret, Bravehearts Wallace and Bruce, Scotland's Chaucer, steel magnate Andrew Carnegie and a whole panoply of kings, ending with the birth of the ill-starred Charles 1. Abbot House offers a unique voyage of discovery in the company of our volunteer guides who take personal pride in providing a warm and welcoming visitor experience.
Feast in the Abbot's Kitchen or eat al fresco in the scented garden which once yielded the herbs for Lady Anne Halkett to practise her healing arts. A visit to the 'Pink Hoose' is a must.
