OLD GIRTH CROSS
1573 this site appears on a map as an ornamental shaft elevated on a flight of
steps though later, it was from here that proclamations and executions were made;
In 1600 the young and beautiful Lady Warriston was beheaded by guillotine, for
conspiring to murder her abusive husband.
Today the Cross is demarcated by a radiating circle of cobbles in the middle
of the street.
