Crossraguel Abbey

Crossraguel was founded early in the 13th century by the Earl of Carrick and its remains include the church, cloister, chapter house and domestic premises.


  • The abbey’s completeness – everything is still there: the monks’ church, their cloister, even their dovecot (pigeon tower).
  • The choir – with fine architectural details from the 15th century.
  • The chapter house – still complete, with benches for the monks and an arched seat for the abbot.
  • The little houses beyond the cloister – tiny two-roomed dwellings, where aged and infirm monks lived in the 15th century.
