LOCATION
The ancient capital of Dunfermline won its bid to have official status city in May 2022, as part of the civic honour’s competition to celebrate the Queen's platinum jubilee. The City of Dunfermline is of considerable historic interest and is the resting place of King Robert the Bruce. Carnegie's Birthplace museum, the Abbey and Abbot House reflect the historic interest of the city, whilst recent developments have seen Dunfermline move into the modern era with Carnegie Museum and Library. Dunfermline is located approximately five miles from the Forth bridges and is therefore particularly popular with commuters to Edinburgh and many parts of the central belt with easy access to the M90 motorway with its direct links to Edinburgh, Perth and Dundee and across the Kincardine Bridge by way of motorways to Stirling, Glasgow and the West. It benefits from a full range of shops, social and leisure facilities and educational establishments. The local railway stations provide a regular service to Edinburgh with intercity links to other parts of the UK. There are regular and convenient bus services both local and national.

HISTORY OF PITREAVIE CASTLE
You would be acquiring your own bit of Scottish history as the Pitreavie Estate was once owned by Robert The Bruce who gifted it to his sister Lady Christina Bruce in the 14th Century. The Castle sits close to the site of the Battle of Pitreavie fought on 20th July 1651 and much later in 1938 was sold to the Air Ministry and used to coordinate operations for the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force Coastal Command before becoming the headquarters of NATO North Atlantic Area after the Second World War. Winston Churchill visited Pitreavie Castle twice during the war.
