Does anybody know the configuration, I am thinking either 150 or 50? Circular or straight string? The Doune was likely to be used as a religious property Abbey or Church of some kind when it was replaced with Drum Castle in the late 12th early 13thC so I feel the inhabitants may well have been expected to show a good example and have all the modern requisites for piety.With regard to rosaries, I recommend to you the Paternoster Row website: http://paternoster-row.org/
There is also a Compleat Anachronist on the subject (details of which can be found at the above site).
If you have rosary questions, Chris Laning (Christian de Holacombe in the SCA) is the woman to ask.
