Dunfermline Abbey was first established in the year 1070, when the church at its current location already existed. It officially became an Abbey in 1128. The abbey now lies in ruins adjacent to the Dunfermline Abbey Church, still used for worship today. The Dunfermline Abbey Church consists of two parts - an old part whose foundations date to the 1100s - reinforced in the early 1500s with flying buttresses, and the new portion built in 1821. The old portion of the Abbey Church is famous for being the burial site of Robert The Bruce - all except his heart, that is, which is interred at Melrose Abbey. The old portion of the Dunfermline Abbey Church and the ruins of the Dunfermline Abbey Palace are maintained by Historic Scotland and can be toured for a price.
