Marie of Guise spent her youth in France. During her time as Queen Consort and later Queen Dowager and Regent of Scotland, she spent the majority of her time in the central belt of Scotland, in the castles and palaces within a few days’ ride of Edinburgh. There are regular entries in the royal accounts for the costs of moving between the royal homes.
