Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this wedding.
The Quaich - Originally crafted from timber the twin handled Quaich was a Scotsman's canteen, mess kit and drinking mug rolled right into one. King James of Scotland provided his betrothed Anne of Denmark a Quaich as a sign of his love for her during the marriage ceremony, From that point on the Quaich has actually been referred to as the "loving cup".
