Outstanding landmark of Scottish history based on the royal Stewart's. Robert the Bruce's daughter is buried here. Her story is both intriguing and tragic.

Such a peaceful space. You are always made very welcome, regardless of your religion. Interesting shop and delicious coffee/cake on Saturday mornings, although the coffee shop is open every day. Children love finding the wee wooden mouse carved on the choristers pews.

This place is truly a beautiful and special building. The tour guide was extremely enthusiastic and informative about the history of the place. Every corner of this building is enrinched with ornate, historic beauty. It feels very sacred.
