The Robert the Bruce Commemoration Trust's long term aim is an innovative, living history visitor centre in Dumfriesshire dedicated to Scotland's hero king. Why Dumfries? Simply because Bruce's quest for the throne of Scotland started in the town with the slaying of his cousin, John "The Red" Comyn, Lord of Badenoch.That single act will provide the centerpiece for the visitor attraction which will give a deep insight into not only Bruce's life story but life in general at the time. www.brucetrust.co.uk The main contribution of the Friends will be helping us raise funds to ensure a centre is up and running although we will welcome any suggestions and help that is offered sincerely. If you would like to become involved please contact the Trust on info@brucetrust.co.uk for info.
