Ambience

dscn1401

Looking through my photos tonight, I came across this one, taken at Dunfermline Abbey back in August last year. The Abbey Nave in Dunfermline is a stunning space, created by the same masons as Durham Cathedral, albeit on a smaller scale. Even on a summer’s day, it has an aura and ambience all of its own, evoking our nation’s history and the events that happened within the walls of the Abbey too. Go there, if you can. Dunfermline has many fine qualities as a place, including Pittencrieff Park just across the road, the Andrew Carnegie museum and the steak bridies they serve at the football. I’ve written about it before here. But the Abbey Nave tops them all, even if the bridies come close.
