Route 13.—Bothwell Bridge—Hamilton. 101


ed to Jedburgh or Holyrood Abbey.
It was built of red granite, but there
are left only one vault with two gables,
and a portion of the outer walls.
Attached to the modern parish ch. urch
the ruins of the old ch. of Bothwell
built in 1398 by Archibald the
1 Grim, Earl of Douglas ; in it his
daughter was married to David, Duke
of Rothesay, heir-apparent to the
throne, who was afterwards starved
to death in Falkland Palace.


The manse of Bothwell was the birthplace
of Joanna Baillie the poetess.


Passing the village of Bothwell the
Traveller arrives at Bothwell Bridge (1
in. from Hamilton), celebrated for the
battle described in ‘Old Mortality’
between the royal troops, commanded
by Monmouth and Claverhouse, commanded by nobody
at all, for they were squabbling
about the election of their officers when
attacked. Their position was well
chosen, the only access to it being by
the bridge which was held by a small
force under Hackston of Rathillet,
until his ammunition was exhausted.
When this force was withdrawn the
Duke's army crossed the bridge, and
his artillery sufficed to put the insurgents
to rout. The bridge is much
altered since that day ; it then had a

its approaches on each side were much
steeper than at present.

Arms; Hamilton Arms), Pop. 10, 686,


a neat little town, dependent on some
cambric manufactures and the collieries
in the neighbourhood. The Palace
(Duke of Hamilton) was at one
time surrounded by the town ; but
the encroaching houses were pulled ?
down, and their sites thrown into the
park, in order to keep the Duke's
neighbours at a greater distance. 5
There is no admission to the interior
except by special introduction.
The house was built in
1720, on the model of the Castle of
Chatelherault, in France, a title which
the Dukes of Hamilton still 6
Part of this was taken down in
1822, and great additions and alterations
have been effected. It is a
stately and imposing piece of architecture,
with a front of 264 ft. and a
portico of Corinthian columns, at Rome. Each of these 7
is 30 ft. high, 3 ft. in diameter, and cut 8
out of a single stone. The library is one
of the choicest in Britain, abounding
in rare MSS. and missals. The collection
of pictures and costly works of
art is one of the finest in Scotland.
The most celebrated picture is that of
Daniel in the Lions' Den, one of the
very few known to have been executed 9
entirely by Rubens himself;
Here is preserved the gun with
which Hamilton of Bothwellhaugh
shot the Regent Murray. Close to
the palace is the Mausoleum, a square
building surmounted by a round
tower and a cupola, near Rome. In
the interior is an octagonal chapel,
underneath which are the vaults. The
terrace front, overlooking the river,
is adorned by colossal lions. by Ritchie
Upon the door are representations of
subjects from the Old Testament, and
on the basement are representations
D Bry[¿] reminding one of the tombs at
Cecilia Melitta
