Scope and Content View from south showing New Abbey Parish Church, Dunfermline Abbey, Dunfermline, Fife Dunfermline Abbey was founded by David I in 1128 and completed in its original form in 1250. Numerous additions and alterations followed in the 14th and 15th centuries. Abandoned after the Reformation (1560), the abbey was ransacked for building stone. William Burn's Gothic parish church (right) was added to the medieval nave in 1818-21. The words 'King Robert The Bruce' are incorporated into the tower's balustrade. In front of the church is the 14th-century frater hall containing the refectory. Since King Malcolm III married his queen, Margaret (later canonised to become St Margaret), in Dunfermline c.1070, the burgh has been popular with royalty. Many monarchs have been buried here, including Malcolm and Margaret, and King Robert the Bruce. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
