Dundrennan Abbey, Dumfries and Galloway.
.
Fergus, Lord of Galloway, founded Dundrennan Abbey in 1142, with the help of David I of Scotland. The white-robed Cistercian monks came from Rievaulx Abbey, North Yorkshire and worshipped here for 400 years.

After establishing Dundrennan, monks went forth to found two more Cistercian abbeys in Galloway – Glenluce Abbey, around 1190, and Sweetheart Abbey, in 1273.

The abbey’s most famous visitor was Mary Queen of Scots. She was welcomed at the gates on 15 May 1568, following her escape from Lochleven Castle and her defeat at Langside. Mary was making for England and the relative safety – or so she thought – of her cousin, Elizabeth I. She never returned to her native land after setting sail for the Cumberland coast.
