Dance Information

Peacocks have lived in Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline since 1905.

Pittencrieff Park (known locally as "the glen") is a public park in Dunfermline. It was purchased in 1902 by the town's most famous son, Andrew Carnegie, and gifted to the people of Dunfermline in a ceremony the following year. Its lands include the historically significant and topologically rugged glen which interrupts the centre of Dunfermline.
