St. Columba, an Irish missionary, established a monastic community here in 563 AD, from which Celtic Christianity spread to Scotland and on to Europe.

Little remains of Columba's original wooden buildings, but the earliest parts of the current Abbey and Nunnery date from around 1200 AD, when a Benedictine community was established and a few ancient high crosses still stand outside.
