The Abbey in Dumferline


Yes, I know there was another mass shooting yesterday in Kansas City. You have plenty of places to look that up. So I am posting about the Abbey in Dumferline. It was once part of a Castle / Priory complex before its consecration as an Abbey. And, no I don't think there is much difference between an Abbey and Priory (go on, look for yourselves).

Kings of Scotland were crowned here, and many more are buried here.



My favorite part of the Abbey is the name King Robert The Bruce highlighted on the topmost rampart of the top. It is very cool.


You can see the words 'KING ROBERT on the top.
