Travel Theme: Glow

 

On the night of March 14th, 1314, Robert the Bruce, King of the Scots, captured Edinburgh Castle and destroyed all the buildings in the castle except a little chapel named after Saint Margaret of Scotland , (1045-1093) who fled to Scotland following the Norman conquest of England in 1066. On Robert’s deathbed in 1329, he issued orders for the chapel’s repair with money put aside for this purpose. The small irregular stone chapel of St Margaret measures ten feet by sixteen feet with walls two feet thick. There are five stained glass windows in the chapel by Douglas Strachan; St Margaret, St Andrew, St Columba, St Ninian, and William Wallace. William Wallace was a Scottish landowner and one of the main leaders of the Scottish Wars of Independence.  He defeated the English army at The Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. In August 1305, he was captured near Glasgow and handed over to King Edward I, who had him hanged, drawn and quartered, and his tarred head put on a pike on London Bridge.  This is the William Wallace window in St Margaret’s Chapel in Edinburgh, Scotland. We are making our way to Scotland. Won’t you join me on the adventure?
