Sloich Hill
Sloich Hill
Also referred to as Robin's Height perhaps a reference to its use by the Bruce forces in the Battle of Slioch in 1307. On Christmas Day Buchan's forces reached Slioch, where the royal forces were commanded by Bruce's brother Edward. An archery battle ensued, but neither side was able to gain an advantage, and Buchan withdrew.
