Dryburgh Abbey


Fawcett R & Oram R (2005) Dryburgh Abbey. Revealing History. Stroud: Tempus.

The medieval remains of the Premonstratensian abbey of Dryburgh are idyllically set amidst mature parkland by the River Tweed in the Scottish borders. Although famous now as the burial place of Sir Walter Scott, the buildings include important fragments of the 13th century church, together with one of the most complete monastic ranges to survive in Scotland. This detailed account of the abbey both as an institution and as a work of architecture is based on a fresh examination of the documentation and the surviving fabric.
