United Kingdom Off The Beaten Path: 420 reviews and 440 photos
Lying in the Lowlands of Scotland and therefore in very close proximity to the English enemy all that is left of these abbeys are ruins. Even the ruins though are magnificent and a poignant reminder of the turbulent past. The abbeys were founded during the 12th century and destroyed during the reign of Henry the eighth.
Jedburgh abbey in the centre of the little town of Jedburgh and was built in 1138. There is an excellent visitors centre close by which shows how the Augustinian monks lived.
