In the end is my beginning….
Formed in 1992 to mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of Mary, Queen of Scots at Linlithgow, The Marie Stuart Society promotes further study of her life and times through research, lectures, activities and publications.
Over the years the Society has been involved in many projects:
- Erected plaques at a number of different venues including Leith, Dumbarton, Carberry, Workington, Crail and Sheffield Manor.
- Planted a tree and plaque at Dundrennan Abbey.
- Financed the restoration of rare books in Lambeth Palace Library.
- Initiated an essay/poetry competition for primary schools throughout Scotland.
We also succeeded in raising sufficient funds to erect a statue of Mary at her birthplace, Linlithgow Palace – this was unveiled on 24 April 2015.
