The Church of the Holy Rude (Cross), Stirling

Where James VI crowned King of Scotland in 1567: first time service in English not Latin, and Protestant rite, not Roman Catholic, although he had been baptized with the Roman rite.

The church was founded in 1129, but destroyed by fire in 1405. It was rebuilt about 1414.
