Dryburgh Abbey

St. Boswells
Melrose
Scottish Borders
TD6 0RQ

Dryburgh sits by the Tweed, its remarkably complete medieval ruins making it easy to appreciate the attractions of the monastic life of the white-clad cannons of the Premonstratensian Order who settled there.

The abbey buildings were destroyed by fire three times, ravaged by war on four occasions and never recovered from the last in 1544. Nevertheless fine examples of ecclesiastic architecture and masonry remain, and its chapter house reveals plaster and paintwork dating back to its inception.

The abbey is the burial place of Sir Walter Scott and Field Marshal Earl Haig.

This property is managed by Historic Scotland.
