Subject notes
The Kirkgate led from the town up to the outer gate which in turn gave entry to St Michael's Kirk and the palace. It was created by James V to replace the original entry to the palace from the east. The Burgh Hall was built in 1670 to replace the 14th century one destroyed by Cromwell.
