The priory isn't large, but is a lovely tranquil place to walk and observe the local history through reading headstones etc. The grounds were partially taped off when we visited, but access through the priory and onwards to the main thoroughfare was unhindered.

Visited during a stay in Coldingahm and was a treat. Steeped in history, its a lovely spot to spend some time and take in the architecture and historical surroundings. Situated centrally in the village its easily accessible.

Very good information is provided about the rise and fall of the priory. A beautiful spot for some quiet contemplation, whether religious or not.
