Policy Statement

The Kinloss Abbey Trust promotes and stimulates the study and general knowledge of the history and heritage of Kinloss Abbey and its surrounding area and of local history in general with the object of improving and advancing the education of the public. It aims to advance the education and appreciation of the public in Kinloss Abbey by the preservation, conservation, exploration, interpretation, development and promotion of the abbey lands and buildings.

In order to achieve this the Trust wishes to provide:

  • A safe and enjoyable environment in which to study the Abbey.
  • Work in partnership with the local Education Authority to provide appropriate information in support of the National Curriculum.
  • Develop educational themes through the site interpretation project.
  • An appreciation and understanding of the need for heritage conservation.

 Talks and Tours

Over the past couple of years many talks have been given by some of the Trustees on the history, life and times of Kinloss Abbey. The talks have always been well received and can be varied to suit the audience. The Trust are always happy to give a talk to any interested group. Visits to Schools and Colleges can also be arranged. In addition, members of the Trust are more than happy to give individual or group guided tours around the Abbey. An average tour can last between 1 and 2 hours. For 2023 free tours are given on the last Sunday of June, July and August at 2 p.m. and the last Saturday of September (to fit in with Doors Open Day).  Booking is not required, just turn up whatever the weather.
