Robert the Bruce led Scotland during the First War of Scottish Independence. He fought successfully during his reign to regain Scotland's place as an independent kingdom and is now revered in Scotland as a national hero. The 750th anniversary of his birth will be on 11 July 2024 and should be a cause of national celebration.

Although there are people who doubt it, we are confident that Robert the Bruce was born at his mother’s estate, Turnberry Castle located in here in North Carrick, South Ayrshire.

Robert the Bruce also held the title of the Earl of Carrick from 1292 until 1306 when he was crowned King, the current Earl of Carrick is Prince William.

The North Carrick Community Benefit Company (NCCBC) are celebrating the great King with a day full of medieval magic in Maybole, South Ayrshire on the 13th July 2024. 

With demonstrations and jousting by History Matters ltd, live entertainment by Clann An Drumma, and so much more, there's something for everyone!

So why not bring the whole family to Maybole and join us in celebrating Robert the Bruce like royalty.
