Tranquil place. Final resting place of General Haig which was interesting and also Walter Scott. Saw an otter playing in the river and catching fish which made our day. Staff were very friendly.

Visiting the borders and decided to visit Dryburgh Abbey. It is a huge site - in really fine condition ( probably almost destroyed by Cromwell). Great location by the river Tweed. Would recommend visitors interested in history to visit.

In the area cramming as much as possible into a couple of days. This was a highlight. A great ruin in a tranquil location. Didn’t realise General Haig was buried here nor Walter Scott. Hardly anyone else there so was a really nice visit!

The other three Border Abbeys are in towns, here the Abbey is in wonderful parkland, making it quite serene and different. It is a little bit out of the way but worth the trip if you have your own transport. Very friendly staff, a beautiful place.
