Dundrennan Abbey
Dundrennan Abbey
This Cistercian abbey was founded in 1142, built just as the Gothic style came into fashion. By the 16th Century the community of monks was diminishing. In 1568 Mary Queen of Scots spent her last night in Scotland here. It fell into ruins, and is now preserved by Historic Scotland.
