With over 750,000 visitors each year, Pittencrieff Park, or ‘The Glen’ as it is more commonly known by local people, is one of Scotland’s most important and popular urban parks.

The Park was purchased in 1902 by the town’s most famous son, Andrew Carnegie, who then gifted it to the people of Dunfermline in a ceremony the following year.

Well known for its resident peacocks, this 76-acre park is of huge historical and cultural significance to Dunfermline, West Fife and beyond.

Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, with match support from the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust and Fife Council, a £1.6 million transformation to return this much-loved greenspace to its former glory was completed in 2016.
