Dunfermline Things to Do: 56 reviews and 151 photos

Pittencrief House used to be a favourite with us when we were kids, in those days the museum had displays on most of the floors in this fine old mansion. I used to love the wild life section which detailed the wild cats, foxes and many other stuffed animals encased in glass. The lady who welcomed us asked had we been before, I told her we had many years ago, she apologised for the lack of displays (only on the first floor now). They only had a small section on nature but on the plus side the parks history was wonderfully show cased through photography with old black & white photos of happy children enjoying sunny days. It is still worth a look and entrance is free but sadly you can no longer climb the old spiral stair case - sometimes health & safety rules spoil things.

Address: Pittencrief House Pittencrief Park
Directions: Not far from the park's main entrance
