Greyfriars ConventBuilt in the 15th century as a friary, restored and opened as a convent in 1898 and lived in by the Sisters of Mercy until 2010. This structure has been described as one of the most handsome buildings in the north of Scotland. The Church of Greyfriars in Abbey Street has a nave and a barrel-vaulted ceiling. There is a stained glass window above the altar of Christ the King leading saintly women. Inside the nave a splendid oak screen divides the church.
