These were originally intended to tie in with the 700th anniversary of Bannockburn - which, of course, is highly relevant to our village - but now, they've been slightly, but happily, altered to take in other historical features.
By June of this year, we hope to have an information panel on the east side of Polmaise Road, possibly at the Tinkers' Loan entrance. It will tell of the ghillies, after whom Gillies Hill is named. They were Bruce's sma' folk whom he stationed there for safety.
From this point, many are surprised at the closeness of the Borestone and the site of fighting on the first day of the battle. The panel will also tell of other aspects of Gillies Hill, eg the Murray family, three of whose four castles/houses in the Stirling area were on the Hill or next to it.
The second panel will be at Bruce's Well, giving a fuller explanation of the area than the current plaque there does. And, we hope, a third panel, outside our Community Centre, will detail how visitors (or villagers) can follow a trail around 10-12 historically-interesting areas of Cambusbarron, such as John Grierson's house, the Coo Loan, and Hayford Mill.
A leaflet, also produced by Stirling Council, may give additional details.
