This church is built directly on the site of one of the greatest medieval abbeys in Scotland, a Cistercian monastery founded in the 1160s. Local architect John Carver designed the present church (built 1860) in a gothic style reminiscent of medieval architecture. The church houses several fascinating remnants from the medieval abbey and in the graveyard are fine historic gravestones, a 19th-century watchtower and the last upstanding fragment of the medieval abbey gatehouse.
