MAYBOLE is set to travel back in time 750 years at a special event this weekend to celebrate the anniversary of Robert the Bruce's birth.

With a fun filled day of captivating history demonstrations, thrilling jousting and fun activities all for free, it's guaranteed to be a great time for the whole family.

The North Carrick Community Benefit Company (NCCBC) has created the Bruce 750 project, a project dedicated to celebrating one of Scotland’s greatest kings. 

Robert the Bruce was crowned King of Scots in 1306 after he led Scotland to victory at the Battle of Bannockburn.

On Saturday, July 13, Glebe Park in Maybole will be transformed back in time to a medieval village as people celebrate his life and legacy.

Visitors can learn about Robert the Bruce’s life with enchanting and immersive story telling by History Matters.

They can also try their hand at archery and axe throwing and see if they would’ve had what it took to join Robert the Bruce in battle.  

Visitors can also take pleasure in hearing the unique and innovative twist to traditional Scottish music by Clan An Drumma and enjoy strolling along the craft fair admiring the beautiful and quirky products the local businesses and crafters have to offer.  

The fun begins at 12pm. To keep up to date with everything Bruce, follow the Bruce 750 project on social media and visit the Bruce 750 website at
