Carberry Woods & Queen Mary's Mount

room 7 ECHOES

Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland, United Kingdom

Come and enjoy a woodland walk through history!

Queen Mary's Mount, near Carberry, was the site of the armed confrontation that ended the reign of Mary Queen of Scots, on 15 June, 1567.

Take a walk with this Collection, and I'll tell you all about it......

I assume you'd like to start from the Buccleuch Estates car park, close to Springfield Cottages on the A6124 between Carberry and Crossgatehall. The carpark grid reference is NT 366 692. If instead you would like to start from the gateway into the woods on the B6414 road between Crossgatehall and Elphinstone, search on the app for the 'Queen Mary's Mount' collection, and follow that instead.
Download this Collection at home, to save data charges, travel to the Buccleuch Estates carpark, and start the Collection there.

It can be quite muddy in these woods after rain, so you should wear appropriate footwear........

Carberry Hill, once the home of the Elphinstone family, is now managed by the Buccleuch Estate.

The images, on the cover of this Collection, are of Mary, with Lord Bothwell on the right. On the left is a medallion celebrating her marriage to Lord Darnley.
