The Aisle marks the largest and best endowed hospital in medieval Scotland and has been the focus of a unique archaeo-medical investigation since 1986. At 1200 ft. altitude this was the highest monastery in the British Isles – with magnificent views... so dress warmly!

For Doors Open Day 2021 we are inviting visitors to explore the unlocked crypt! Take a tour by the Director of Unique Archaeo-medical Investigations, who will provide news on the 30 year investigation. 



No pre-booking necessary.

Parking available nearby; disabled access from car park gate.
