How’s this for a bit of glamour? Chris Pine is in Dunfermline today filming the new Netflix movie about King Robert the Bruce. Lots of swords and bearded extras were to be seen but the main cast were a bit elusive. The bells at the Abbey were suspended for a day. Abbot House got a sprinkling of fairy dust as well – rooms on the ground floor were used for make up, wardrobe and green rooms – all of which makes for a great back story ahead of its exciting re-opening in spring 2018.

Karen mentioned this movie being shot in Scotland, I figured they would have to film there seeing as his heart was buried there.Thanks for the pics.
Just to let you know his heart is actually buried in Melrose. The rest of his body is in Dunfermline Abbey.
