Hill of Slane: The abbey stands 158 metres (520 ft) above the surroundings. There is an artificial mound on the western end of the hilltop. The hill may have been chosen as the site of Christian abbey due to the presence of an existing pagan shrine, the remains of which may be two standing stones in the burial yard.
