    ... hotel room window. The existing structure, with its gorgeous spires and stained glass dates back to the 14th century and is regarded as the "Mother Church of Presbyterianism." There is also a newer section (only about 100 years old) called the Thistle Chapel, the chapel of Scotland's Order of Chivalry, which was founded by King James VII in 1687 and includes himself and 16 knights.
