Pluscarden Abbey

Pluscarden Abbey, near Elgin, Scotland, is a monastery of the Valliscaulian Order, founded in 1230 near Elgin, Scotland, by King Alexander II of Scotland. In 1454, the Benedictine rule was adopted there; in 1586, one monk survived. The confiscated property later came into the possession of John Crichton-Stuart, 3rd Marquess of Bute, who translated the breviary into English. Laterly, the monastery was elevated to the status of an abbey.
