Probably one of the better preserved historic sites without being restored with modern methods to capture previous grandeur. Very interesting to hear a guide describe the various rooms and what they were used for. Interesting inscribed grave sites reveals the hardships of that early life....More

The priory was a place strictly for monks and is in pretty good shape.Many nooks and crannies and our guide Roger told stories of the clans that were in the area at the time and many are buried at the site.Recommend as a guided tour.
