Dunfermline Abbey Church Side Aisle, Scotland

It was twilight in the church of Dunfermline Abbey as I hastily took this photo. Besides a couple lights along the walls, the ancient church was dark and silent. This part of the church is not used, so the interior of the building is completely empty of pews, altars, paintings, statues. Imagine the echoing footsteps of the last tourists of the day, the last cold rays of January light filtering down from the small high windows, the solid pillars keeping watch over the royal graves inside. Robert the Bruce, the king of Scotland from 1306 to 1329, lies here.
