Scope and Content Engraving showing 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. This engraving shows the abbey and its associated buildings as it was at the end of the 17th century. To the left is the frater hall containing the refectory, and the royal palace. The spire of the abbey church can be seen behind these buildings. 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.
