Cistercian Abbeys in Scotland

We look at first to Rievaulx Abbey the mother Abbey concerning Melrose Abbey, although it was not Scottish this is where it all started, it was founded in 1132 by twelve Monks from  Clairvaux Abbey, after a couple of years the Abbey was so full of Monks they had to look for another area and this would be in Scotland.
