James was buried at the Charterhouse in Perth which has long since gone and, now, a major heritage project, headed up by Professor Richard Oram of Stirling University and president of the Scottish Castles Association , aims to not only locate the monarch's final resting place, but recreate it some 580 years on from his untimely death at the age of 42.
