The magnificent and ancient sanctuary has been a religious site for more than 1500 years and is one of the oldest Christian Sits in Scotland, dating back to the 6th Century, when St Servanus (St Serf) established a Community of Monks here.

It is also known as the birth place of Saint Kentigern, A.D.612, who became St Mungo, patron Saint of Glasgow.

The Abbey Church was formerly part of the much larger Cistercian Abbey, which was founded in 1217 by Malcolm the 3rd, of MacDuff Thane of Fife, who lived close by. Today the Abbey is a church of Scotland Parish Church (Presbyterian).

The building has many significant historical features and is worthy of a visit as part of a day out.

You can also visit the ruins of the Cistercian monastery of the 1200s, once home to a community of monks and lay brothers.

The Abbey is open to the public every day from 9.30am until 5.00pm (8.00pm from May until September).

The Abbey Tearooms is open May till September from 11am till 4pm serving home made scones and cakes with a variety of teas and coffees.
