The Abbey itself is quite ordinary although some important people are buried in the Abbey. Not a lot of interesting things inside but the ruins in the grounds are well worth the steep climb up from the village. More to photo outside than inside

Visited the Abbey today and the gardens. A warm welcome from the ladies who were arranging the floral displays in the Abbey, the smell of lilies was amazing. The Abbey is soaked in history and is a beautiful building, so old and in amazing condition.

Beautiful old Abbey with very informative staff and printed guides to help explain the history. We drove in and were able to park in front, but I imagine that wouldn't be the case in the high season

Hike up the hill, it’s worth it. Cool ruins and a great graveyard and an interesting old church...it was completely deserted the day I was there....really atmospheric

There are some fantastic stained glass windows in the Abbey. These alone make a visit well wort while. Steeped in history with many remains of the former building still very visible.

Walk uphill, through the lovely preserved village (many from the NTS small houses scheme) and up to the old Abbey. You can walk round the ruins, and walk up further to the church. The return walk, downhill is easier, and there are fine views on...More

Situated at the top of the hill leaving Culross, the Abbey is worth visiting just to visualise how it would have been in its heyday. The Church is also worth a look.

Commanding view from from the hilltop. Remarkably rich history. It's a bit of a hike to get there, but worth the effort.

Yes it's an uphill walk, but good things come to those that wait. Views on the way up - stunning. Abbey and grounds at the top - more stunning. As previous reviewers have said, lovely tea room next to the Abbey. Run by volunteers and...More

Although access is via a fairly steep road walking uphill, once there it is worth the effort. Although the abbey itself is in ruins, the church is very interesting and much larger than you at first anticipate. Some interesting and lovely side chapels especially the...More
