  1. can you please tell me where the Priory is situated today , I cant find where it is situated ,, thanks

    • Hi William. It is now within quite dense woodland, at the edge of the river clyde, on the Blantyre side of the river, directly across from Bothwell Castle. It is accessed from the playing fields, just beyond Blantyre off Blantyreferme Road. Nearest parking would be at the football playing fields.Take care when visiting for the first time .The priory ruins rest on a very dangerous steep precipice and it is not somewhere id recommend going without a friend or two for safety for that reason alone.
