Fearn Abbey

Door open days

7 September 2019 (10 am to 4 pm)

Highland - Black Isle, Ross & Cromarty

Known as "The Lamp of the North", Fearn Abbey was at one time an expensive monastery set in ythe fertile lands of the Tarbat Peninsula.  It is one of the most northerly monastic foundation in Scotland and the oldest Premonstratension foundation to exist in Scotland, and possibly the UK that is still in use for worship today.

It is a miracle that Fearn Abbey still survives. So often it has fallen into disrepair, been rebuilt, patched up and restored, yet the magnificent structure is still evident from these early times nearly 800 years ago.
