Crawford Priory

I first visited the ruin of Crawford Priory in May 2004 with my 7 year old son Andrew on the way to a picnic in St Andrews.

I was interested in Crawford Priory as one of my Deeside forebears, James Gordon, had left the remote Aberdeenshire glen of his birth, to become a gardener at Crawford Priory. His family story is tragic. I never did manage to find out what happened to his boy that survived.
