  • Crossraguel Abbey is a ruined, near complete, abbey near Maybole in South Ayrshire.

    Formally called the Abbey of Saint Mary of Crossraguel, it was founded in 1244 by the then Earl of Carrick. The Earl invited monks of the Cluniac order to occupy the abbey. Named after the abbey of Cluny in France, Crossraguel and a monastery in Paisley were the only Cluniac monasteries in Scotland.

    Visitors today can see the remains of the abbey which include the monks’ church, the cloister, the chapter house, the dovecot and the dwellings where the old and infirm monks lived in the 15th century.

    The abbey is open from April to September and has a small admission fee. Parking, facilities and a gift shop are available www.historic-scotland.gov.uk
