Guide to Dundrennan Abbey


The Cistercian Abbey at Dundrennan was founded in 1142 probably from Rievaulx Abbey. Dundrennan was where Mary Queen of Scots stayed before sailing for Cumbria.

Historic Scotland’s new Official Souvenir Guide is by Adrian Cox and J.S. Richardson. It traces its origins to Richardson’s original ‘official guide’ of 1934. The new guide follows the new format of Guided Tour followed by History. It also illustrates one of the original Ministry of Works signs in a picture of the sedilia.
