Dunfermline East was a burgh constituency represented in the House of Commonsmarker of the Parliament of the United Kingdommarker. It elected one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post voting system.

The constituency was created for the 1983 general election from parts of the seats of Central Fife & Dunfermline. It was abolished for the 2005 general election as part of a major revision in the composition of parliamentary constituencies in Scotland.

Most of Dunfermline East and its neighbouring constituency Kirkcaldy now make up the new seat of Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath. The remaining parts of the seat were moved to the new Dunfermline and West Fifemarker and Glenrothesmarker constituencies.

The constituency's name was something of a misnomer as it never actually included any part of the town of Dunfermlinemarker. Cowdenbeathmarker was the largest town in the constituency.

Members of Parliament

The constituency's only MP was Gordon Brown of the Labour Party, who was Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1992 to 1997 and Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1997 to 2007, when he became Prime Minister.
