On each page you will find Wallace fighting for our Freedom. William Wallace was born in Ederslie, Renfewshire in circa 1270. From 1296 he fought dauntlessly in defence of his Country, Liberty and Independence in the face O fearful odds and great hardship to his cost. He died in 1305 his example of heroism and devotion inspired those that came next. His memory lives on in this site and in all Scottish blood, we honour him with Pride all his countrymen he led the road to great victory and FREEDOM of the Scots, so when you look on every page Wallace is there swinging his mighty sword for the freedom we have so never forgot without Wallace no freedom would be had, we Scots are free.

Sir William Wallace, Scottish patriot and hero battled at Stirling Bridge and started the road to FREEDOM for the Scots King Robert The Bruce battled at Bannockburn against the English. Wallace and The Bruce changed our course forever and their story is known worldwide, this is my tribute to both o them.
