David I established a priory here which became an abbey in 1235. Inchcolm Abbey is now the best-preserved group of monastic buildings in Scotland. The island is famed for its seals, wildlife and coastal defences from two World Wars and is accessed by the Maid of the Forth Ferry that leaves from South Queensferry and cruises up the Firth of Forth providing spectacular views of the Forth Bridges.

Dunfermline Area

The Western part of Fife is not the most attractive area in Scotland being an area that used to be dominated by coal mining and other related industry but accommodation in the area in convenient for access to Edinburgh, the Knockhill race track is a draw for petrol-heads, the Palace and Abbey in Dunfermline is a major attraction and Aberdour is an attractive village to visit.
