Lindores Abbey

Lindores Abbey
Newburgh, near the banks of the Tay once had a thriving weaving industry and was a popular salmon fishing area.

Lindores Abbey (founded 1178), on the edge of the town, is now scattered ruins - a victim of John Knox and the Reformation. It was once known for it's fruit growing and supplied Falkland Palace with apples and pears. William Wallace is known to have celebrated his victory at Black Earnside at the Abbey.
