Captain Francis Grose made this drawing of the Collegiate Church at Bothwell around 1790. Grose was famous for his drawings of Scottish churches, many of which appeared in his book, 'The Antiquities of Scotland' published in 1791. The first Earl of Douglas founded Bothwell Collegiate Church in October 1398, during the reign of King Robert II of Scotland. The church is one of only two Scottish collegiate churches which were founded before 1400 - the other exception being Dunbar Collegiate Church. Dedicated to St Bride, the church started with a provost and eight prebendaries, and came richly endowed.
