St Andrews Castle
Huntingtower (Ruthven) Castle
Beginning with Margaret (Malcolm III's queen) in the 11th century, the abbey at Dunfermline had a long association with the monarchy, not least as the burial place of many of Scotland's kings and queens. Charles I (1625-49) was born in the newly created palace at Dunfermline in 1600. The palace is pictured here together with the gatehouse. The royal guesthouse was adapted as a palace for Queen Anne of Denmark after it had been granted to her by James VI in 1589. David I (1124-53) was also born at Dunfermline.
