King James V1 Hosptal Perth March

King James V1 Hosptal Perth March 
The Carthusian Priory on this site was replaced by a hosptal founded in 1589 by King James V1 on or near the site of the monastry. The original hospital was short lived, however, as it befell the same fate as the Greyfriars monastry,  it was demolished to provide construction material for the citadel by Cromwells troops in Perth The current hospital dates from 1749
