Pluscarden Photographs

Pluscarden Abbey looked like this last week.

The first three photographs were taken from part way up the hill that stands behind the monastery. The Church is at the centre of the first two photographs, partly hidden by trees. The Abbey's website contains more photographs and details about the Church building. My photographs were taken from the right of the orientation of the photograph on the Abbey website home page.

This photograph was taken on the track that runs along the top of the hill. This is Forestry Commission land, so the timber is grown comercially.

And is this Sunday lunch for the brethren? Pheasant were in plentiful evidence in the Abbey grounds and surrounding fields and hill side.

Wot a great place. I camped there one Easter and had pheasants scratching at my tent ...
