Event Details

Bookings are now being taken for a "walk and talk" to commemorate the 700th anniversary of Edward Bruce’s campaign in Ireland (1315-18), when, fresh from Bannockburn, the brother of Robert the Bruce sailed from Ayr to Larne. The event is organised by SLHF in conjunction with the Ulster Historical Foundation. With complex family connections in Ulster, this enterprise by the Bruces to bring Ireland under one ruler and to open a second front against the English initially succeeded, but ultimately failed.

The talk by Dr William Roulston will be held in the historic Loudoun Hall. In addition, local historian Tom Barclay will be conducting a gentle walk around the medieval centre of Ayr.

Places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a "first come first served" basis so do please book early.

The price includes tea/ coffee on arrival but does not include lunch. There are ample good eateries in the immediate vicinity of Loudoun Hall to suit all tastes and pockets.
