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.
