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.
