Carberry Hill Stand-off (1567) *

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>

Description:

In the far corner of the Carberry Woodlands stands stands Queen Mary’s Mount, where Mary, Queen of Scots and the Lord Bothwell in 1567 lost the battle (of nerves!) against the rebel lords (Lords of the Congregation).

Mary only surrendered when she knew Bothwell had managed to escape and was 'safe'.

There is a modest monument with inscription.
