'Turning the Bull'
'Turning the Bull'
In 1313, when King Robert Bruce was out hunting with Sir James Douglas and William de Rule, a great bull came charging at the king. Fearless de Rule intercepted the bull, grabbing it by the horns, he turned its head and killed it thus saving the king from a savage attack. For his actions, de Rule was given the title, 'Turn ye Bull', the name Turnbull was born. The statue is in the courtyard of the Hawick Hub Heritage centre.
