Photographer's Note

This abbey is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country. There has been an abbey in Melrose since the 7th century. But what you see on this picture is largely of 15th century construction. The earlier structure having suffered greatly for Sctoland independence in the 14th century.

The heart of Robert the Bruce is buried from beneath the abbey, on the left side of the picture.

Tech: I was not satisfied with the sky that I captured but the grass is so beautiful that I decided to desaturate the entire image excepted the grass.
