Melrose Abbey is one of the most magnificent ruins of Scotland and was founded by David I in 1136 AD for the Cistercian Order and was devoted to Virgin Mary. It was the most flourishing Abbey at its hay times. The British army attached the abbey, embezzled and burnt the structure in 1385 by Richard II. The Abbey was rebuilt and restored for about 100 years by the King Robert- the Bruce. It is mostly spoken about for its delicate masonry and sumptuous architecture. The structure is adorned with few of the unusual and unique sculptures such as bagpipe playing pig and the hobgoblins.
