Holyrood Abbey and Palace, Edinburgh, Scotland

In memory of Isabella, Countess-Dowager of Errol, daughter of Sir William Carr of Etall, Bart, and widow of James, 14th Earl of Erol, whose life was passed in the discharge of all the duties which religion prescribes; and closed in the hopes which it inspires! This stone is inscribed by her grateful and affectionate daughter, Augusta Carr, Countess of Glasgow.
She was born March 31 1742 and died Nov 3 1808.

She married James Hay, Earl of Erroll in 1762 and they had 12 children. She was painted by Reynolds in 1763 which is in Glasgow Museum.
