Alba Go Brath!

On this day, the 11th of July, in the year 1274,
Robert I, better known as Robert the Bruce,
was most likely born at Turnberry Castle in Ayrshire.

“For as long as one hundred of us shall remain alive,
we shall never in any wise consent submit to
the rule of the English, for it is not for glory we fight,
nor riches, or for honour, but for freedom alone,
which no good man loses but with his life.”
