Lovely historic Abbey on the banks of the Tweed river. The Abbey is a ruin but there's quite a lot that remains to give a good impression of the original splendor. The informal grounds have seating and picnic tables. The best seats are near the river and looking back at the Abbey. We loved it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ‘

This is such a beautiful and peaceful place. The trees , flowers and birds are wonderful. A short walk takes you to a lovely Riverside spot.

Firstly the sun was shining, the Abbey looked glorious. Well kept, lots of info. We were lucky, that in the grounds there were people going back to Robert the Bruce's day explaining about how to go to battle and what people eat and drank in the good old days.. fascinating. Great little town to discover too, when u have done the Abbey. Dont leave until u have been to the museum at the Abbey , lots of amazing stuff to see plus lots of facts and figures. Brilliant.

Abbey is fenced off because like most of Historic Scotland sites, this ruined abbey has been recently deemed unsafe by some safety nerd. Abbey grounds closed at 3pm - on a Saturday afternoon- in July! We wouldn't have been able to go in anyway because we didn't book (bear in mind you're only walking around outside) What a joke outfit Historic Scotland are.

One of my absolute favourite places to visit in the Scottish borders. It's just so beautiful and peaceful and has really good, clean toilet facilities, which I find is lacking in most other tourist attractions in the borders so well done Dryburgh Abby, I'll be back soon.
