Mary Queen of Scots tour

To describe the short life of Mary as ‘dramatic’ is an understatement. She became a queen at 6 days old and had been moved around Scotland for her safety; by 18 she had been married and widowed; led her troops to put down two rebellions and witnessed the violent murder of her close confidant. At just 25, she was imprisoned, forced to abdicate and driven to exile.

 The greatest ever tale of royal tragedy, rebellion and conspiracies lives on and we invite you to follow in Mary’s footsteps and visit the places in Scotland where some of the most dramatic events took place.
