Built in the latter half of the 12th century, the abbey was home to a community of Cistercian monks.

Highlights

  • The north and south transepts – the best preserved late-12th-century Cistercian architecture in Scotland.

  • The chapter house – a graceful and precious fragment of Cistercian architecture from the early 13th century.

  • The peaceful location – where one can relax and reflect on the Cistercian ideal as pronounced by Abbot Ailred of Rievaulx: ‘Everywhere peace, everywhere serenity, and a marvellous freedom from the tumult of the world.’
