A monk working on a computer in the office at Sancta Maria Abbey at Nunraw, East Lothian, home since 1946 to the Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance. Around 15 monks were resident at Nunraw in 1996, undertaking a mixture of daily tasks and strict religious observance. The present purpose-built building dates from 1969 when the monks moved from the nearby Nunraw house.
