One of the biggest celebrations of the life of Mary Queen of Scots is to take place at an Edinburgh museum next year, for what will be a one-off exhibition.
Rare treasures linked to the iconic historical figure will join part of the display, which will take place at the National Museum of Scotland in the summer of 2013, whilst jewellery, portraits, documents and other personal possessions will be available for the public to see.
It is hoped the exhibition will help reveal more about the royal ancestor, whilst uncovering her remarkable story, which ranges from her time on the throne to captivity and eventual execution.
Keeper of Scottish history and archaeology George Dalgeish said: “Drawing together surviving relics intimately connected with Mary Stewart and wider Renaissance material from public and private collections, the exhibition will tell the incredible story of the sovereign and the woman.”
It looks set to be another fabulous addition to the world famous cultural landscape prevalent in the Scottish capital. Why not see why it is such an attraction for culture vultures around Britain and combine a trip to the city with a stay in one of the fine Edinburgh hotels
