Newly released drone footage shows preparations are underway for work to begin on Scotland’s first “super-campus” being built in Dunfermline.
The Dunfermline Learning Campus, in the east of the town, is to incorporate a new Woodmill High School, a new St Columba’s RC High School and new Fife College buildings.
Enabling work on the site of the £180 million project got underway last year with pupils and council leaders attending an official ‘ground breaking’ ceremony last month.
The new campus will be purpose-built and fully accessible for all pupils, parents, staff and community users.

The college element of the campus will cover almost five acres and incorporate a general teaching building, a large engineering and construction division, a four-court sports hall and social and civic spaces.
