We did not walk though the whole park as my parents can't walk long distances, but what we seen looked very pretty and I will definitely be back. Several entrances to the park, lots of friendly squirrels (bring some nuts or something, cracking pictures guaranteed).

I was born in Dunfermline and spent a huge amount of time in the park, it’s just the most calming and wonderfully beautiful spot to spend some time, it’s so worth a visit, please try to chill out there if you can.
