Our two-bedroom Carnegie Cottage, is on the ground floor of a traditional two-storey Victorian workers cottage, built around 1890, with many original features including fireplaces and working window shutters. But don't despair, it has all the mod cons - central heating, WiFi, Smart TV, washing machine, electric shower etc, that would not have been available to the original inhabitants.
Its two bedrooms sleep four people. There is a large double with lots of storage space and a second bedroom with two bunk beds, fun for the young or young at heart. Both main bedroom and living room have the novelty of original working internal shutters.
There is a good sized living room with comfy sofa for chatting, reading or watching TV after a hard day exploring the joys of Fife. The kitchen is separate. Toilet and shower are in separate adjacent rooms, which speeds up the process of getting out and about in the morning. The apartment has its own front door, and back door leading into the private unmanicured wild garden where you can relax surrounded by birdsong.
On the upper floor is our one bedroom Glen Malcolm Apartment, again completely self-contained with its own entrance.
It is located in a quiet residential area just a few minutes walk to the historic quarter with its abbey and palace ruins, and the fantastic Pittencrieff Park, The Glen, as it is known locally, with its woodland walks, glasshouse, formal gardens, and huge childrens' play parks, the first phase opened by Queen Elizabeth, and the second all inclusive phase by Nicola Sturgeon in 2018. Also minutes to the town with its restaurants, retail therapy, theatres, museums swimming pool, bus/coach station. Easy access to the coastal path and country walks and local golf courses.
For walkers, especially those interested in exploring ancient religious sites, Dunfermline is located on the Fife Pilgrim Way, a Scottish 64 mile long distance footpath officially opened by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown in July 2019 that runs inland through Fife, from Culross and North Queensferry via Dunfermline to St Andrews, following the route taken by medieval pilgrims to the cathedral of St Andrews. See Ian Bradley's book The Fife Pilgrim Way. Why not try the 9 mile section beween Dunfermline and Culross, getting the bus either there or back.
Fife Coastal Path
Or you may prefer the Fife Coastal Path with its string of picturesque fishing villages and wonderful coastline, brimming with birdlife.
Cyclists are also well catered for with the off-road cycle route (Number 764) through attractive countryside from Dunfermline to Clackmannan starting about two hundred yards from the cottage, also good for walking.
