  • Scope and Contents

    The charters, most of which were copied from a still extant 1548 cartulary, were later transliterated more accurately by Scott in a second volume, Adv.MS.13.1.2, hence the dating in the second volume has been preferred.

  • Existence and Location of Copies

    Microfilm available: Mf.Sec.MSS.186.

    The original charters were later printed by one of Scott`s successors in ‘The Blackfriars of Perth`, edited by Reverend Robert Milne (Edinburgh, 1893).
