A collection of historical and genalogical records
I have heard that there is a proposal to erect a memorial to Sir James Douglas, who won his knighthood at the Battle of Bannockburn, and died carrying the heart of Robert the Bruce to the Holy Land.
As I understand it, the plan is to erect a cairn, or monument at Douglas Castle on land owned by The Earl of Home.
Can anyone tell me more about this?
I have hopes that a Clan Douglas Heritage Society might be formed at the time of the Clan Gathering, in July 2014. Perhaps this could be the opening event?
