In 1314

According to one account of the battle, on 23 June, Bruce ordered his ‘smale folk’ (servants and so forth) 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 on 24th June from the hill’s vantage point. Another location may have been Gillies Hill.


Coxet Hill today lies beneath modern housing.
