To win a £25 voucher to spend in ‘Cafe Fresh’ and a copy of the ‘Old Dunfermline’ DVD that is on sale in the Kingsgate Centre outside Debenhams until Xmas Eve, in ‘Cafe Fresh’ and also online on, simply like this photograph. The winner will be announced on Friday 18th December.
The photograph shows Fraser and Carmichael’s warehouse that distributed groceries to shops and businesses throughout Scotland. The company also owned the City Hotel and Maclay’s brewery in Alloa. The premises were demolished in 1973 allowing visitors an uninterrupted view of Dunfermline Abbey.

    My Auntie and friend worked in Fraser and Carmichaels. My Auntie stayed across the road In the top flat. We used to go and visit her and got some sweeties as she worked in the confectionary dept. Happy days.

    So the only reason they demolished it was to provide a better view? Seems a tad wasteful. Excellent views of the abbey can be had from any number of other vantage points!!!

    Kenn Nyw Att view of the kirkgate, the building straight ahead is now the grass area where the benches are. See the sign for the old Old Police Station at what is now “The Old Inn”
