Tour Carnegie Birthplace, Dunfermline

Situated near the centre of Dunfermline in West Fife at 2 Moodie Street is an 18th-century pantiled weaver's cottage where Andrew Carnegie the industrialist and benefactor was born in 1835. Now a museum, it was extended in 1925 with the construction of the adjacent Memorial Building designed by James Shearer.

Of the 70 million Carnegie gave to charity about 1 million came to benefit Dunfermline where the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust is based. Gifts to the town included the Carnegie Centre, the Carnegie Free Library, the Carnegie Hall and Pittencrieff Park.
