A great wee place to visit when in Dunfermline

A very interesting place to visit, we are so glad it is free and there is so much information on the boards inside.

An interesting oddity

I have to admit I'd not come across Queen Margaret of Scotland before going to visit this cave that we came across by accident. Lots of steps down to the cave which is buried underneath a car-park. Good information boards along the way and worth taking a look at.

Fascinating history.

From the car park it just looks like a little building, then you go through the door. It all unfolds before you as you walk down the stairs you can read about the history of the Cave and of St Margaret.

This is the cave were Margaret used to say her prayers and it has a fascinating history.
Not the easiest to find unless you know were you are going.
There is a tunnel with signs along the way to get to the small cave.
Agood place to reflect.

Fascinating place of historical and religious interest

Took me a while to find the entrance as it’s not particularly well sign posted and if you approach from the wrong side the entrance can’t be easily spotted. However once inside there’s lots of information boards telling her story and you descend down a lot of steps until you reach the cave and small shrine. The singing monks certainly add to the atmosphere adding a bit of a tingle! There was only two other people when we were there. The attendant was very helpful.

Quirky
Jul 2018 • Solo
Small unassuming little building on the edge of a car park holds 80+ steps down into the bowels of the earth where we find this quirky wee holy cave. Information boards are dotted around on the way down and they really do tell a fascinating story. If you've got a spare ten minutes it's worth a wee visit.

Historic place with a difference

St Margaret's cave is a great thing to check out if you are in Dunfermline. It is next to a large carpark in the cbd area, free to get into and not an excessive stroll down into a cave to see where she undertook her private prayer. There is some great interesting information on plagues along the way. Good for adults and kids will love the wander through the cave. It is cool in there, so wear a jumper.
St Margaret was one of the nice people of the world - am glad we found this to pay our respects.

Unusual, Historic, Great Fun and Worth a Look
May 2018 • Solo
A shame that a drab car park is the setting of a site so central in Scottish history as it would have taken only a little valuation of the required dignity to set out the site with an enclosure wall, gardens, etc. Not far from the abbey and has a display and interpretation area. The cave is more impressive in the appreciation than the reality and the statue is a little surreal. It closes at 4pm.

Surprising find on way to Pitencrieff Park
Jun 2017 • Friends
Discovered this place purely by accident and was pleasantly surprised . It is unusual to find a cave in a town centre car park . I misread the name on the small cottage building thought it said Queen Margaret Cafe however found it very interesting and the young girl was very helpful and informative . I will certainly recommend this historic site to friends or relatives visiting Dunfermline and to ignore the 3 or 4 disparraging reviews
