  • This is an amazing place with loads of atmosphere. It is lovely to wander around and when I was there in the Spring, the banks were covered in snowdrops and everything seemed on the cusp of new life.  more »

  • Very convenient to visit if staying at the Dryburgh Abbey Hotel, who even provide guests with discount vouchers. The abbey itself is wonderfully atmospheric and a beautiful place with lots of flowers ...  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 Friendly­čśŐ.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.
