This is a cute little abbey. It had a nice section that was full of history about the abbey and the area. Laid out very well! There is a small little café next-door that is attached and have drinks and small plates.

It's worth making the short but steep walk up the partly cobbled hill to view the abbey ruins and the kirk, complete with family memorials. If you don't mind heights, the view from the top of a steep metal stairway (more like a giant ladder)...More

Abbey is up a steep hill. The cistercian monks had a bit of a tough life... But no tougher than the townsfolk. Abbey was founded in 1200s and still has a certain charm. Free to visit.

Culross abbey is a short but steep walk up hill. The abbey itself is self guided and the ruins offer open space for kids to run about with breathtaking views. Loads of inter sting artifacts and I formation inside the Abbey itself but probably not...More

It is a bit of a walk up hill on cobbled village streets to Culross Abbey, but it is well worth the hike. The original Abbey was founded in 1217 and was the home of Cistercian Monks. In the early 15th century, the Scottish Reformation...More
