This is a picture of Dundrennan Abbey, a Cistercian abbey founded in 1142, just as the Gothic style came into fashion. By the 16th Century the community of monks was diminishing. In 1568 Mary Queen of Scots spent her last night in Scotland here. It fell into ruins, and is now preserved by Historic Scotland.
