Effigy of Robert the Bruce
Effigy of Robert the Bruce
This life sized effigy of Robert the Bruce is carved from wood with an alabaster face and hands. Below the effigy is a chamber containing a bone of Robert the Bruce, brought here from Dunfermline Abbey.

Robert the Bruce had been to the area and it was on the hillside above the kirk that the King despatched his famous outflanking column under the Earl of Douglas, which inflicted such a decisive defeat upon John of Lorne and his clansmen in the Pass of Brander.
