The abbey was founded in 1217 by Malcolm I, and was first colonised by monks from the Kinloss Abbey.

3. Early Pictish Site.

It is evident that the abbey was built over the earlier Pictish church – supposedly founded by Saint Serf in the 6th century – as witnessed by the presence in the ruined Cistercian church of early medieval carved stones.
