A 'fairytale' medieval mansion that once played host to ill-fated monarch Mary Queen of Scots has gone on the market for £1.8 million.<br />
<br />
The Scottish ruler was 24 when she stayed at Cowdenknowes in October 1566 while travelling to the frontier town of Jedburgh to hold court, just a year before she was forced off the throne.<br />
<br />
Mary's stay at the stunning estate, located at Earlston in Berwickshire, is recorded in documents which have survived the last 450 years in tact.<br />
<br />
Cowdenknowes is now up for sale with estate agents Knight Frank for £1,775,000.
