Pluscarden Abbey is a fully restored medieval monastery where pilgrims have flocked for centuries, giving the name, old Pilgrim Road, to the path that winds through the valley’s forested hillside and to the North Gate of the Priory. The Abbey is home to some stunning medieval stained glass windows, memorial stones, and a precinct wall that is second in size only to that of St. Andrews.

Visitors to the Pluscarden Abbey can also find a variety of great ways to enjoy the stunning Scottish Highlands landscape that surrounds them, whether it's a trip south to Cairngorms National Park, or heading north towards the town of Nairn and the Moray Firth.
