Did you know that Tain in the Highlands is Scotlandís oldest Royal Burgh with a charter dating from 1066? The charter was given by Malcolm III in recognition of the shrine there to St Duthac, allowing its church the right to grant sanctuary and giving its people exemption from certain taxes. Robert the Bruce sent his family to seek sanctuary there in 1306, but the English ignored the ruling and captured them.
