Abbey Monks

Although the monastery may have passed into history, and the buildings taken on a different lease of life, one part of the history of the Abbey that will always remain in Fort Augustus is the life, and death, of the monks. The monks cemetery with its beautiful spot overlooking the loch was part of the monk's garden, out of bounds to the boys. But the monks funerals often gave the boys an opportunity to see the cemetery. With the demise of the Abbey, the cemetery was more accessible. The list below provides a history of the monks (and nuns from the old convent and some laity) who made up some of the history of Fort Augustus Abbey and who are buried in the monks cemetery. There are many other monks not listed below who were monks of our Abbey and who continue God's work on earth or whose resting place is elsewhere. These are signified with a *
