Carnwath Mercat Cross
Carnwath Mercat Cross
The Mercat Cross is at the centre of Carnwath, set back a little where the Main Street widens to form the Market Square. It was erected by the 5th Lord of Somerville in 1516 to celebrate the granting of burgh status to the village in 1514. It gives distances along the road from Edinburgh to Ayr (mediaeval spelling 'Air') and the road from Peebles to Glasgow. The original urn on top was replaced in 1970.
