About Coldingham Priory

By the time Burns visited, all that remained were the north and east walls of the choir, having fallen victim to a siege in the time of Oliver Cromwell. These remaining walls were later incorporated into the present day church. The Luckenbooth is a community owned venture situated near the entrance to the Priory, which houses an ‘interpretation centre’ that has interactive displays to further explain the working of the Priory and history of the village. It is worth a stop, as Burns himself did to see the remains of the Priory.
