Dryburgh Abbey, Scotland – Part 2

Dryburgh Abbey is a wonderfully preserved ruin, and one of four major abbeys in the area, including Melrose, Jedburgh, and Kelso. However, it is the only one of the four that can claim the honor of being Sir Walter Scott’s final resting place.

Scott’s final resting place is very near his home, Abbotsford. It is well worth visiting for any number of reasons, but seeing the beauty here is reason enough.
