The Courier: Dunfermline heritage gem looks to take its place on the Fife tourism trail

The Courier: Dunfermline heritage gem looks to take its place on the Fife tourism trail. “The old lady is still in the pink, but at the landmark building in Maygate, the finishing touches are being made to a restoration that should take the 500-year-old, A-listed structure well into this century and pin it to the Fife tourism map. There will be a phased opening, with classes in the outside workshop, creative rental space and the opening of an education centre on the first floor, including a digital archive of Abbot House. A digital archive featuring photographs, drawings, architectural plans, documents, and local records relating to the house will also be accessible to the public.”

      Reading this article reminded me of my school days in the 1960s. Our poetry book contained the ballad “Sir Patrick Spens”, the poem begins “The king sat in Dunfermline town drinking blude-red wine”… I think the spelling “blude” is why the poem sticks in my mind.
