    Fascinating history

    Scotland’s future was shaped at the Abbey when the Declaration of Abroath was drafted here. Every room holds a story: the font in the Chapel is believed to have been used to baptise Mary Queen of Scots; the secret staircase; and the vaulted Crypt. Private guided tours can be arranged for your guests.
