Abbot House - Plans

Abbot House has been closed to the public since August 2015, but has continued to be looked after by its owners, Carnegie Dunfermline Trust. Moving forward, they have supported the creation of a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation to assume responsibility for taking care of the house and gardens.

The project board has raised funding to repair and furnish Abbot House, whilst maintaining it's historic integrity. The plans outline suggestions to support the buildings sustainability and promote inclusive community and visitor use.
