(Marjory Bruce Cairn)

The Marjory Bruce Monument is a perfectly conical cairn located at the side of the A741 road as it passes Dundonald Road in the Gallowhill district of Paisley, a half-mile (1 km) north of the town centre. The monument is said to mark the spot where the heavily-pregnant Marjory Bruce, daughter of Robert the Bruce, was fatally injured when she fell from her horse while returning to her home in Renfrew on 2nd March 1316. Her son was born by caesarean section and became King Robert II. She is buried in Paisley Abbey.
