Full Description
Set in tranquil seclusion on the banks of the River Tweed, Dryburgh Abbey’s remarkably complete medieval ruins make it easy to understand the attractions of monastic life; quiet contemplation and an appreciation of nature are simple in such peaceful surroundings. This graceful property has not always enjoyed calm existence, but today boasts splendid examples of ecclesiastic architecture and masonry. The final resting place of Romantic novelist Sir Walter Scott, Dryburgh Abbey offers a beautiful and atmospheric setting for marriage ceremonies You can hire Dryburgh Abbey just for your wedding photographs, even if your ceremony will be held elsewhere.
