This is the only remnant of a church where a parliament was held in 1315, the year after the celebrated victory at the battle of Bannockburn. John Knox’s son-in-law was the minister here, and Mary, Queen of Scots, stayed overnight in 1563. You can only admire it from the street, but it's very photogenic.
