Cafe & dining - the garden
Enjoy a stroll around the medieval knotwork gardens of Abbot House boasting seasonal colourful spring blooms, sweet smelling summer flowers and a riot of autumn shades, lovingly tended by a band of volunteers.
Admire the herb garden recreated from the 17th century diaries of the then resident of Abbot House, Lady Anne Halkett, who used the herbs to make medicines for the poor of Dunfermline.
Discover the history behind the magnificent decorative iron gates, the sun dial, inspired by Pictish designs, the fountain and the wall plaques.
Wander into the wild garden with its great old trees, home to wild birds, squirrels and bats, where you will see the original town cross and tree fossils.
Then why not take a seat in these tranquil surroundings overlooking the Abbey and enjoy a cup of coffee where if you are lucky one of the towns famous peacocks might wander in for a visit.
