Melrose Abbey

Abbey St, Melrose TD6 9LG, UK – 01896 822562

Amazing abbey although it only remains the ruins. Good place to spend some time walking and staring at this architectural beauty.

Melrose Abbey is a magnificent ruin on a grand scale with lavishly decorated masonry..The exterior of this magnificent ruin is decorated by unusual sculptures, including hobgoblins, cooks with ladles and a bagpipe playing pig. The abbey is also thought to be the burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart, marked with a commemorative carved stone plaque within the grounds. Ita a little expensive place.
