Dryburgh Abbey Travel guide
Dryburgh Abbey : Michelin's recommendations
Dryburgh Abbey's majestic and evocative red stone ruins nestle in the secluded setting of a sheltered bend in the River Tweed. It was founded in the 12C as Scotland’s first Norbertine house; after a peaceful and prosperous period, the abbey was caught up in the Wars of Independence. At the beginning of the 17C, the abbey ceased to exist as a religious foundation and it became the seat of commandatorship abbots.
