The abbey is well maintained, with a nice garden. We dropped by for a couple of hours on our way from Inverness to Aberdeen. It is quiet and tranquil, as one would expect an abbey to be.

We try to visit regularly. It is an oasis of calm after heavy working week. Accomodation is simple and clean. Leave it as you expect to find it! Beautiful Abbey and always a warm welcome. Simple well cooked food for men. Women cook for themselves in separate accomodation. Lovely country walks all around. Be refreshed!

Lovely and peaceful place. Such a lovely day to visit. Always go when visiting family. Such an amazing insight to the lives of people that live there. Beautiful building. Every time I go the building seems to have improved.

Father Martin showed us round and told us...
