Dundrennan Abbey (HES)

The beautiful ruins, amid a peaceful setting, of a Cistercian Abbey founded in 1142.

Enjoy the peace of this beautiful medievel abbey set in tree-fringed pastures. There is particularly fine early Gothic architecture in its chapter house and, within which you can find the effigy of a murdered abbot with a dagger at his heart and a slaughtered assailant at his feet. Mary Queen of Scotland spent her last hours in Scotland here after the disastrous Battle of Langside in 1568.
