Follow the trail of Mary Queen of Scots

One of the newest attractions of Edinburgh was launched recently. It is called the Trail of Mary, Queen of Scots. Mary was one of the most controversial Queens that ever lived. Scholars have studied her life for centuries to uncover the political intrigues that plagued her life. The life of this young queen reads like a saga of love, betrayal and murder and centuries after her death she still fascinates people.

The trail has been devised to let the visitor follow Mary’s short and traumatic life from her birth in 1452. The trail takes visitors through the most magnificent castles of Scotland and many majestic ruins. This tour shows people where Mary lived, the places she hid and where she died.
