Excerpt from St. Margaret, Queen of Scotland Here to the brim a goblet fill! He cried, and stood upright; This to our fort upon the hill, Soon may it rise to sight, Unblotted ever be its fame, And aye Dunfermline be its name. When St Margaret came to Scotland the Tower of Dunfermline was Malcolm's favourite residence. It stood on the most precipitous part of a small peninsula formed by the windings of a rippling burn, and was almost aggressive in its strength. Built for safety rather than for beauty.
