SCOTLAND'S HERITAGE: DRYBURGH ABBEY

The series of Scotland's gems continues....

A few weeks ago, I visited some beautiful sites on the Scottish borders. One of them was the Dryburgh Abbey, built in 1150 by white-clad Premonstratensian canons.


Click here for more information about the Abbey.

It was a lovely day and, luckily, very quiet. If you are able to spend some time in Scotland, I would suggest to become a member of 'Historic Scotland'. The membership gives you access to a large number of historic sites all over Scotland. The Historic Scotland website is a good place to start looking when planning to visit historical sites.

My photo album shows interesting images of this impressive Abbey. Have a look at the photos and feel free to leave a comment on my blog site.
