Effigy, possibly of  Alexander Stewart or John Stuart, Greyfriars, Inverness

Effigy in Greyfriars Churchyard, Inverness, claiming to be either that of John Stuart, Prior of Coldingham and brother of the Earl of Moray, or Alexander Stewart, Earl of Mar who led the Lowland army at the battle of Harlaw in 1411. Greyfriars also contains the ancient remains of many of the principal families of the area - the Chiefs of Macintosh prior to 1606, the Baillies of Dunain, the Macleans of Dochgarroch and the Mackintoshes of Borlum. Within the graveyard there is also a pillar said to have formed part of the original choir of the monastery founded by Alexander II in 1233
