  • Very important Historical site Built 1110. . Great ruins Burial place of Sir WalterScott Field Marshall Earl Haig Beautiful setting 
  • Well maintained site with easy access, including dogs. Good info boards and helpful Scottish heritage staff. Adjacent to River Tweed and local walks. 
  • For me, Dryburgh Abbey was the most low-key of the spectacular abbeys in the Borders. But that is perhaps what made it my favorite. Unlike Jedburgh or Melrose, it's rather tucked away. It's not small,...  more »

  • After visiting Abottsford, we made it a point to visit Dryburgh Abbey as well. The final resting place of Sir Walter Scott was so peaceful and picturesque. I can certainly understand why he loved this place. Great staff and the kids really enjoyed finding the answers on the explorer sheets.
  • Lovely that the Abbey is Dog Friendly😊.Had a superb snowy visit on Saturday 30th January.
  • The second of the "Border Abbeys" we went to was Dryburgh. This is where Sir Walter Scott is buried, which should tell you something about it (for better and for worst). Despite that, it is deservedly renowned, and was far less touristed than nearby Melrose Abbey. The buildings are set amidst beautiful grounds, including some fine 17th, 18th, and 19th century tombstones in the scenic cemetery.
  • What a beautiful place would go back anytime
  • Of all the Border Abbey's, this was our favorite.
