A Medieval Abbey In Scotland

On the way back from visiting Threave Castle in Scotland last year, we came across the most wonderful abbey ruins - Sweetheart Abbey.

Founded in 1275, the Abbey has a fascinating history. Although there are only ruins to see today, it feels a very special place. When we visited we were lucky to arrive just as the sun was setting. The Abbey ruins glowed in the sunlight with the stone taking on a luminescent glow. This is one of the photographs that we took which I just had to share with our castle blog readers.

Medieval Abbeys are a vast subject in themselves and one we hope to cover more in future posts.
