EDZELL, VISITED BY MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS, AND ST. ANDREWS, WHERE JAMES III WAS BORN

EDZELL, VISITED BY MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS, AND ST. ANDREWS, WHERE JAMES III WAS BORN

Edzell (top), on the borders of Forfarshire and Kincardine, has a comparatively well preserved castle about a mile west of the village. The square Stirling Tower is little damaged, and there is still to be seen the room which Mary Queen of Scots used on her visits here. The episcopal castle at St. Andrews stands on the cliffs, and its entrance is still defended by a moat. There are still signs of the siege of 1546, when Norman Leslie held the place with John Knox against the enemies of religious reform. The castle was first built in 1200.
