Description
Melrose Abbey is probably the most famous ruin in Scotland. It was founded by David I around 1136 as a Cistercian abbey, but largely destroyed by Richard II's English army in 1385. The surviving remains of the church are largely of the early 15th century, and are of an elegance unsurpassed in Scotland. The Commendator's House contains a large collection of objects found during excavation. Audio guide available.
