Whatever the history of this cave, it is a great cave to visit and spend some time in contemplation. As caves go, its a good cave.

Went here as the tourist info sent us, it's free and lots of steps down to the praying area. Lots of information about her, nice place to say you have been. Glad I went

St Margaret's cave, Dunfermline Fife Scotland. There are 87 steps down to the small cave but its not so difficult to get down and back up as they have been well thought out and put in on levels. There is around 9 or 10 steps then a flat level to walk along with boards of interest to read along the way, also benches have been placed on each level. It is well light with nice broad steps down. The cave is small and a bit eerie there is music playing in the background of monks singing, you can ask before you go down to the cave for the music to be turned off but I personally think it adds to the atmosphere of this special place.

Everyone who lives in Dunfermline seems to eventually visit this atttraction. And it is quite quirky. The actual attraction is a religious grotto frequented by Queen Margaret and would have been lost except for some very inventive engineering which has maintained access even after the original gorge was upfilled to create the city car park.
The trip down the tunnel is probably more exciting than the actual grotto. We should probably do a similar thing with Tesco's city centre development. But not bother with the tunnel.
