Fort Augustus Abbey

Fort Augustus Abbey, properly St. Benedict's Abbey, at Fort Augustus, Inverness-shire, Scotland, was a Benedictine monastery, from late in the nineteenth century to 1998.

In 2013, the Observer reported that Scottish police were investigating allegations that pupils had been subject to physical and sexual abuse while at the abbey school. A BBC Scotland Investigates programme, entitled Sins of Our Fathers, contained allegations that Fort Augustus Abbey was used as a "dumping ground" for clergy previously accused of abuse elsewhere, and the authorities were given inadequate notification. The allegations included physical beating, verbal humiliation and sexual abuse.
