Braehead & Broomridge Heritage Trail – FREE Summer Guided Walks

September 16, 2018 @ 3:00 am - 5:30 pm

Local Councillor Chris Kane will be leading a series of free guided walks around the Braehead & Broomridge Heritage Trail this summer.  The route will take you over the 1314 Bannockburn battlefield, passing directly through the likely site of the English encampment and the spot where Bruce is said to have addressed his troops with a speech Robert Burns later reimagined in the poem “Scots Wha Hae”.  You’ll learn about the rich mining heritage of the area, our forgotten World Champion bagpipe band, and see one of the few remaining remnants of the ancient Caledonian Forest.
