NARRATIVE ON PRINT - This house, which is commonly called 'the Abbey House,' has undergone many transmutations since it was the residence of the Abbots of Aberbrothock, and the occasional abode of King Robert the Bruce, and other of the Scottish monarchs ; since also it received Edward I. of England, as an uninvited guest, on his visits to the Abbey in 1296 and 1303.

The House has been all but completely stripped of the beautiful carvings in wood, of an ecclesiastical character, with which it was at one time adorned. The great kitchen, and other ground apartments, with their groined arches, are still entire.
(Notes by George Hay, 1883)
