Journey back 700 years to the Wars of Independence and see
Dumfries and Galloway through the eyes of Scotlandís greatest King.
THE summer of 2009 was a key point in the development of the Bruce Trustís objective, raising the profile of Scotlandís King Robert the Bruce.
It marked the completion of three yearís painstaking work drawing together all the places in south west Scotlandís Dumfries and Galloway region which have strong connections with Bruce whose family home for centuries was in Annandale, first at Annan and later at Lochmaben.
The resultÖfour fascinating trails centring on Dumfries where the murder of the Red Comyn launched the Wars of Independence which eventually secured freedom and independence for Scotland.
The importance of the trails, in terms of education and tourism, was emphasised with Royal assent when the Duke of York, Prince Andrew, officially declared them open.
Full details of the all the trails and the best way to follow them whether on foot or by car, are available in a special booklet and leaflet widely distributed throughout Dumfries and Galloway
The Bruce Trust gratefully thanks the all partners whose help was invaluable creating the trails:
