Nunraw, Abbey of
NUNRAW, ABBEY OF
To date the only Cistercian monastery built in Scotland since the Reformation. It was founded in 1946 as a daughterhouse of roscrea (Ireland) at Haddington, East Lothian, near Edinburgh, and made an abbey in 1948. The site originally belonged to a Cistercian convent (founded 1152–58), which passed into private hands on the death of the last prioress (1563).
