Dryburgh Abbey (HES)

Perhaps the most beautiful of all the Border Abbeys. The ruins are remarkably complete.

Wander among the graceful ruins of this beautiful Borders abbey set beside the River Tweed. It has been ravaged by fire and war but stone carvings and painted platerwork have survived to provide a fascinating glimpse of its once-magnificent decoration.Look for the final resting place of author Sir Walter Scott and World War One military leader Field Marshall Douglas Haig as well as the Dryburgh Yew, reputedly one of Scotland's most ancient trees.
