Sweetheart Abbey, Dumfries and Galloway

Dumfries and Galloway

The beautiful red stone remains of Sweetheart Abbey lay in the village of New Abbey, about six miles South of Dumfries.Previously documented on the Castle Blog because of the slight defensive qualities built into its fabric, only a few photos are shown here.

The above photo shows the abbey from the South, looking at the ruined church attached to the tower. The partially surviving rose window can just be seen above the roof line in the foreground.
