Melrose Abbey Tour

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Today, I am presenting some images of Melrose Abbey which is one of the most fascinating of the Borders abbeys.These ruins date from the 14th and 15th centuries.

The Abbey is built of red sandstone and was destroyed by the English on the 14th century. The remains are Gothic and famous for their decorative stonework.

Melrose Abbey was founded by David I in 1136 and was rebuilt by Robert the Bruce whose heart is buried at the Abbey.

At time of my visit a wedding was in progress.

Overall, well worth a visit in context of a Borders tour.
