Introduction

The Nether Yett was a 14th century gateway into the precinct of Dunfermline Abbey (Yett translates as 'port' or gateway). It became ruinous after the 16th century Reformation, when the Abbey was dissolved, and the remaining structure was largely demmolished in 1751. Only a small fragment of the gateway now survives.
