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 here are people who doubt it, we are confident that Robert the Bruce was born at his mother’s estate, Turnberry Castle located in North Carrick.
Robert the Bruce was also the Earl of Carrick from 1292 to 1306.
