Jedburgh Abbey has always seemed to draw the unwanted attention of foreign armies, since its foundation in 1138. Nowadays it just gets invaded by tourists.
Still quite complete, as well as the abbey church buidings, there is also a herb garden and a visitor centre to explore.
The visitor centre contains 8th C carvings and other artefacts excavated from the abbey grounds.
