The Bruce Family celebrates birthdays and great anniversary's

Wednesday was a very special day in Scotland. There was a double celebration at Broomhall for the Bruce Family !!!

First was the birthday of Lord Elgin, who was in good spirits at the ripe old age of 92 ! Several members of the King of Scots Robert the Bruce Society attended a small but very lively birthday celebration where we presented Lord Elgin with a Sgian Dubh made from the Robert the Bruce Yew Tree on Loch Lomond side. This is the very tree that the Great King Robert himself, took shelter under and told stories to his men of the great heroes of mythology during his campaign on the Wars of Independence. The second gift presented to Lord Elgin was King Robert the Bruce's Great Seal of Scotland. This was set in a beautiful Bruce Tartan frame. It was also a celebration of the 700th anniversary of this seal being used in Scotland.

So we would like to wish a massive happy birthday to our patron, Lord Elgin and a wonderful celebration for the anniversary of the Great Seal.

Latest event from Castle Dangerous

The Strathleven Artizans were privileged and honoured to be invited to the first Sir James Douglas Day at Castle Dangerous.

This event was full of fun, music, the Carrick 800 Society as well as the Men 'O Bruce and the Axe throwers and archers of the Douglas.

Such fun was had at the event that we will definitely return to this scene next year for the one day event.
