Cambuskenneth Abbey in Cambuskenneth, Scotland

Image of a photograph depicting the belltower at Cambuskenneth Abbey in Cambuskenneth, Scotland.  This photo was taken by Finlay McWalter in 2004.

The bell tower, at the Abbey, is a free-standing campanile.  Inside the tower one can see a display of medieval grave slabs.

Built in the thirteenth-century, the tower has ornamental arcades and lancet windows.  Over 20 meters (65 feet) high, it is a good example of thirteenth-century architecture.

Cambuskenneth Abbey was founded, circa 1140, by David I of Scotland.  It is located near Stirling Castle, one of David's favorite residences.
