|Marker placed over the site where Robert the Bruce's heart was buried|
The burial place of the heart was forgotten over the centuries, but rediscovered in 1996 during an archeological excavation. The Scots reburied the heart and held a contest for the design of the marker.
The marker has an X symbolizing St. Andrew's cross that appears on the Scottish flag, and a heart through which the X weaves. The inscription reads, "A noble heart may have nane ease, gif freedom failye." Translation- A noble heart cannot be at peace if freedom is lacking.
