Inchcolm Abbey

Inchcolm Abbey, September 2012.

Inchcolm Abbey is a medieval abbey on the island of Inchcolm, Firth of Forth. A 12th century Priory, given full Abbey status in 1235. Fell into disuse after the Scottish Reformation in 1560.

It’s location gives the island strategic military importance in defending Edinburgh and controlling access to the Forth. Access by boat, well worth a visit for those in the area.
