Owner description: Admire one of Scotland's most impressive medieval interiors and most important royal sites, founded as a priory in about 1080. Robert the Bruce was buried in the medieval choir, now beneath the Abbey church of 1821. St Margaret and David I are among a number of monarchs and other royalty laid to rest here. Charles I was born in the palace that grew up alongside the abbey.

don't pass this by, so much history and near to other attractions such as Pittencrieff park and Andrew Carnegie's birthplace.

Like many Historic Scotland properties this site is largely a ruin and most uninteresting.
