Cemetery notes and/or description:
Bothwell Parish Church (also known as St. Bride's Collegiate Church) is located in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is touted as "The Oldest Collegiate Church in Scotland". Archibald "Black Archibald" Douglas the third Earl of Douglas originally founded the church in 1398. However, during reconstruction in the 1930's, stone fragments dating from the 13th c. were found.
Bothwell Parish Church in fact occupies the site of a church that stood there in the 6th c. Archibald's body was laid to rest in St. Bride's: unfortunately, his tomb no longer exists.


*Most headstones are very badly weathered and illegible.
