Braehead and Broomridge

Start and end your walk at the Braehead Community Garden. Look out for all that remains of Millhall Colliery, which from 1902 until 1958 had a dramatic impact on the landscape.

You’ll walk through the most likely site of Edward II’s camp during the two day battle of Bannockburn in 1314 and walk along the ancient Balquhidderock Wood, where the Scots are said to have emerged at dawn on the second day of the Battle of Bannockburn and where Robert Burns may have been inspired to write the poem “Scots Wha Hae”
