Venue DescriptionThis site is currently closed. Tucked in a tranquil valley is one of Scotland's best-preserved monasteries. a highlight is the magnificent chapter house, with its ornate windows and grotesque carvings.
Approach to site Approach from the main car park is 70m along a tarmac road with a slight downward incline of 1:30 to the visitor centre and museum. Visitor Centre The visitor centre and museum has step-free access. Monument Most of the monument is on the level. There is a relatively even grass surface, which is naturally firmer during dry weather. There are numerous archaeological remains within the grass. They include open holes approximately 30cm x 15cm, the remnants of a water supply system. These are not enclosed and can be very difficult to see on approach. Two small steps lead to the cloister, which is surfaced in deep gravel. The chapter house has three stone steps down into it, without a handrail.
