A priory and an Abbey - two separate attractions operated by two organisations i.e English Heritage and then the National Trust - why don't they get their act together and make a joint charge? We drove across the causeway but.... firstly as you enter the...More

In contrast to the disappointing castle (see my review) this was stunning. It is small and set to the side of a graveyard and church which are still in use. Beautiful pink stone which is more often found further up the coast in the Borders...More

You get a very special feeling walking about this priory, knowing that the monks were here in the 600s. The ruins are very appealing to the eye and the place is good for the soul as well. Make sure you climb the hill to the...More

You can do both but clearly need to consult the Tide Chart well in advance. Also, no problem in taking your dog - hope you both enjoy the visit as it's well worth it!
