Marian Sites in Scotland

Mary, Queen of Scots Home Page

The list of sites which appear below is confined to Scottish places associated with Mary, Queen of Scots. If you do not see the one you want, either you will find it on the "Places to Visit" page. But if not, I have not had the chance to go there yet but will soon! The * next to some of the castles indicates that Mary did stay or at least visit those places; the others are merely associated to Mary's story through the people who owned them or the events that took place there. Most of these links can also be accessed by clicking on the relevant place names on the "Map of Scotland".
