Dunfermline is a pretty town, the second biggest in Fife, Scotland. About 46,000 people live in the town, whose first residents settled in the Neolithic period. The town is situated on high ground close to the northern Firth of Forth shore.
It has good transport connections thanks to a railway station in the town and it is close to the M90, connecting it to Perth. The main employers in the area are BSkyB and Amazon with many residents being employed in retail.
Dunfermline has an attractive high street with many small shops as well as a big shopping centre. However, as well as having its modern attractions it also has plenty of history to brag about.
Dunfermline Abbey, built in the early 1100s is one of the best examples of Scoto-Norman architecture and the first Carnegie Library was opened in Dunfermline in August 1883.
