Famous Travellers in Scotland
The intention of this section of Scotland from the Roadside is to follow in
the footsteps of some famous travellers. People like:
- William Wallace and Robert the Bruce who travelled during their fight to
help keep Scotland independent.
- Bonnie Prince Charlie who travelled around Scotland for two reasons;
firstly in an attempt to claim the British throne for his father; and then in
an effort to evade capture.
- The cattle drovers who made their way from the Highlands and islands with cattle to
sell at the markets in the south or even England.

Tales of Scotland by R. H. Coats (published 1913)!
