Jedburgh Abbey, Scotland

Today, we travelled to the Scottish Borders, an often overlooked part of Scotland with rolling hills, rich arable farmland and ancient buildings.

First stop was Melrose which has a history dating back to the Roman period. Here our key focus was Melrose Abbey. This now ruined structure was originally founded by King David I in 1136 for an order of Cistercian monks. Severe damage was inflicted by English armies during the Anglo-Scottish wars with re-building during 15th century. Catholic worship ceased at the Reformation in 1560 and the last monk died in 1590. Notable for a stone carving of a pig playing the bagpipes and (the alleged) burial-place of the heart of King Robert the Bruce.
