Crossraguel Abbey


After the Second World War Ralegh Radford conducted two excavations in Scotland: one at Whithorn, and the other on Orkney. It was at this  time that he prepared the Department of the Environment ‘blue’ guide on Crossraguel Abbey (1970). This was published as the Historic Scotland guide in 1995, and then reprinted in 2010.

The present guide has four main sections:

  • The story of Crossraguel Abbey
  • A short tour of Crossraguel Abbey
  • The Abbey as a place of worship
  • The Abbey as a home

The guide also includes ‘further reading’.
