About Dunfermline

Dunfermline, Scottish Gaelic: Dùn Phàrlain) is a town and former Royal Burgh in Fife, Scotland, on high ground 3 miles (4.8 km) from the northern shore of the Firth of Forth. According to a 2008 estimate, Dunfermline has a population of 46,430, making it the second-biggest settlement in Fife. Part of the town's name comes from the Gaelic word, "dun" which translates as a fortified hill. The other parts, "ferm" and "lyn" are unclear, although "ferm" may have been an alternative name for the Tower Burn and "lyn", a pool or casade. Together, this may suggest the site of a fortification between the Ferm Burn and the Lyne Burn to the south. (Improve this description or add photos)
