Carnock, Dunfermline

 

Carnock Church Ruin - North Side - geograph.org.uk - 840267

 

This is a quaint village near Dunfermline in Scotland.

The name of the village derives from Scottish Gaelic.

 

The attraction on any tours of Scotland are the ruins of a 12th Century church.

The church was partly restored in the 17th Century.

The pulpit was dated 1674 and the church bell dated 1638.

But the building is somewhat dilapidated now.

 

On Main Street is the 16th-century “Carnock Inn” which is great if you fancy a pint!

 

Urns containing Roman coinage have been found at Carnock and it is believed that it was an important military base for the Roman army.

 

Nearby is the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum if that is of interest.
