  • Coxet Hill

    The sma’ folk intervene

  • About

In 1314

On 23 June, Bruce ordered his ‘sma’ folk’ to take his army’s baggage and belongings out of sight and reach of the English army. They may have retreated to a small valley to the north of Coxet Hill – but may well have watched the proceedings from the hill’s vantage point. Another location may have been Gillies Hill.


Coxet Hill today lies beneath modern housing.
