Burials, Blossoms and Beers!


Lindsay here, just checking in with you before the weekend..

As Covid restrictions are lifting, many of Scotland's famed heritage sites are once again open to the public. It’s the perfect time to get acquainted or perhaps re-acquainted with Dunfermline Abbey and Palace. This magnificent testament to Dunfermline, Scotland's Ancient Capital, has stood as a beacon for hundreds of years.

I love having nearly 1000 years of history literally on my doorstep, being able to visit the nave, the oldest part of the Abbey, and seeing where Robert the Bruce was buried. So why not enjoy a walk around the Abbey and, for a Spring celebration, the beautiful Cherry blossoms in Pittencrieff Park are putting on a show and also worth a visit.

If the rain puts a dampener on beer gardens this weekend, then the Great Scots range from Loch Leven Brewery might be just the thing. Four expertly crafted beers named to celebrate historical figures with links to the surrounding areas. Heritage and a great beer all in one!

I have it on good authority, from my husband, that Outlaw King (Golden Ale) named after Robert the Bruce and Shining Knight (Craft Lager) named after Andrew Carnegie, are particularly delicious. And they offer free local home delivery as well!

Looking forward to sharing more inspiration, to get you out and about in Dunfermline, next week.



PS If you are not much of a fan of beer, like me, Loch Leven Brewery also does sublime Gin!
