About St. Margaret's

The Parish of St Margaret's, Dunfermline has been in existence for over 170 years although the church itself was not built until 1896. It has seen many changes over the years, both internally and externally but has always stood as the centrepiece of pilgrimage and honour of St. Margaret, the patroness of Scotland.


In 1996 St. Margaret's RC Memorial Church celebrated its centenary. As part of the celebrations a short history of the Parish was compiled and published. An online version of this history is available to download here.

Access for the disabled

A side door to the left of the main entrance to St Margaret's has an electric power lift designed for wheelchair access to the church. In the car park there are 6 bays in close proximity to the side door for drivers who display a blue badge for the disabled.
