New Abbey Corn Mill

New Abbey is a village in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. It is around 8 miles (13 km) south-west of Dumfries. The summit of the prominent hill Criffel is 2.5 miles (4.0 km) to the south.

The village has a wealth of history including the ruined Cistercian abbey Sweetheart Abbey, founded by Lady Devorgilla in 1273 to commemorate the death of her husband John Balliol. The monks named the abbey dulce cor (Sweetheart Abbey), however, the village was named New Abbey because of the nearby Dundrennan Abbey. The village has a watermill, the New Abbey Corn Mill.[1] Loch Kindar has a crannog and the remains of Kirk Kindar (this was the parish church until just after 1633 when it was transferred to the refectory of the suppressed Sweetheart Abbey) on an island located just outside the village.

The village is host to a saw mill, two hotels, a village shop, a coffee shop, a primary school, a doctor's surgery, a village hall, a bowling green, a football pitch - Maryfield Park (home to Abbey Vale FC), a Church of Scotland church, a Roman Catholic church and the Shambellie House Museum of Costume.

The village has many walks on offer including the steps up to the Waterloo Monument. The village has two burns that flow through it including the New Abbey Pow which runs into the River Nith Estuary and the Sheep Burn.
