St Margaret’s Street and Nether Yett, Dunfermline

Dunfermline - Bottom of St Margarets Street

The bit of wall, in the photo below, represents the remains of an arched gateway and attached fragment of walling dating probably from the middle of the 12th century. The gateway is sometimes known as the South Port or Nether Yett, and would originally have been the main access from the south, into the monastic precinct of Dunfermline Abbey.

    1. I love Dunfermline, Meg, it’s got so much more history than Glenrothes. And Pittencrieff Park is one of my favourites, anywhere in the UK! It must have been great growing up in that area 🙂
