Escape by boat to this remarkable island, home to one of the most complete medieval abbeys in Scotland.

Escape by boat to this remarkable island, home to one of the most complete medieval abbeys in Scotland. It was supposedly founded by King Alexander I after he was stranded here in 1123.Step inside the near-complete cloisters and chapter house, learn more in the visitor centre and drink in views over the Firth of Forth from the bell tower. Elsewhere on the island are wartime fortifications. Look out for seals from the ferry. Access to parts of the island may be restricted between May and August when some seabirds aggressively protect their young. No water supply for drinking or washing on the island.
