Abbey and Palace Robert the Bruce

Robert the Bruce
Today's abbey is dominated by the modern parish church which bears the name 'King Robert The Bruce' around its central tower. This great hero of Scotland was buried beneath the abbey, and his heart was removed and send to Melrose abbey in the Borders. When the parish church was built in 1821 his body was re-interred beneath the pulpit of the abbey. His final resting place is now marked with a spectacular brass plaque.
