Built in 1128, Kelso Abbey is one of the best Roman structures in Scotland. Although the Abbey is now in a battered state, due to coming under fire from cannonballs in an attack in the 1540’s by Henry VIII’s army, it still stands as one of the most iconic Abbeys in Scotland.
Jedburgh Abbey was founded in 1138 By David I and has, quite incredibly, stayed complete despite being targeted by many English armies due to its location. It is also accessible in some parts to wheelchair users.
The apparent burial site for Robert the Bruce’s heart, Melrose Abbey was built in 1136 by David I again. It was largely destroyed by English armies in the 15th century but the gargoyles and unusual structures can still be seen to this day.
One of the tougher abbeys in Scotland after surviving not one or two but three fires in its time! It was established in 1150. Sir Walter Scott and David Erskine, the 11th Earl of Buchan are both buried at this historical abbey. This is another abbey that is accessible for wheelchair users.
