Cambuskenneth  Stirlingshire

 

In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Cambuskenneth like this:

Cambuskenneth Abbey, ruins, in co. and 3 miles E. of Stirling, on river Forth; founded by David I., in 1147, it was a fine specimen of the Early English style. The tower is the only part which now remains entire. James III. and his Queen, the Princess Margaret of Denmark, were buried near the high altar. Their bodies were reinterred under a new tomb erected by Queen Victoria in 1865.
