Plans for a new £10m museum showcasing the history of a Fife town have been criticised by residents who are worried it will spoil the view.
Fife Council wants to build the complex, which will house a museum, library and art gallery, as an extension behind the current library in Dunfermline.
Councillors have granted planning permission to the project and are waiting to see if they are granted funding.
Working with the Carnegie Trust and Historic Scotland, the idea is to house artifacts never before seen by the public and tell the story of the town.
But the Dunfermline Heritage Guardians have submitted an objection to the plans, saying they would "spoil the tranquillity" of the medieval site.
The council have allocated £6.8m to the project and will find out in February if they can get funding for the rest of the money.
