There's been much talk this week about the 'March of the Ghillies' on Sunday 22 June being banned by the National Trust: it can't be.
It is true that the Bannockburn Live organisers are seeking to close off the Borestone for 26 days in June/July - probably the time when more visitors want to be there than ever before.
It is, after all, the 700th anniversary of the Battle. But more importantly to Cambusbarronians, that day, the 22nd, will be, according to local legend, the 700th anniversary of Bruce's visit to Cambusbarron Chapel, and his usage of the miraculous water from its Holy Well (drunk by him; sprinkled onto the battlefield before fighting began.)
And - he'd probably stationed the ghillies, or camp-followers, on the high ground way above the Chapel, soon to be named after them.
The rationale? To get the place ready for its 2-day re-enactment of the Battle - the week after our March.
But Save Gillies Hill has formally applied to be admitted. There is talk that the whole area need not be closed off for all that time.
And, even if the ghillies are, ironically, barred, the March is still on and we'll meet nearby to listen to Bruce Crawford MSP , Ann McGuire MP , Craig Robertson, novelist, and, the main speaker, former MP and MSP, Dennis Canavan.
So: keep that date in mind: we need a record turn-out that day to pressurise the quarriers.
