2 reviews of Cambuskenneth Abbey

Augustinians in Central Scotland


Cambuskenneth Abbey, also called Stirling Abbey, was founded by the Augustinian order after receiving permission from the Scottish King David I in the 12th century. Its architectural structure is very similar to the abbey situated next to Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh. Its busiest period was back in the 13th and 14th centuries when Stirling's central government depended heavily on its activities. Today the ruins remain, but unfortunately they are not very well-preserved (which is a shame in a city with as much historical legacy as Stirling). You can also see one of the towers. Admission is free and it does not take long to see everything.
