Scope and Content Photographic copy of drawing showing The Palace, Conventual Buildings and 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 drawing shows the abbey buildings before the new parish church was added to the east end of the nave. In the foreground are the remains of the frater hall, which contained the refectory or dining hall (centre), and the royal palace (left). 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.
