    These 4 shops were the centre of the village and the first was Argyll and Butes local library which is not opened on a Friday.......

    On a late September morning the two industrious ladies with piles of wrapped christmas presents ready for Romanian Orphanages were most helpful in our quest for the site of Bruces coastal seat.They were able to unearth this ceremonial document of a commemoration service at the previous Cardross parish church where Lord Elgin unvieled a plaque as to where the KINGS BODY RESTED IN STATE,before the funeral at Dunfermline Abbey. However the minister said noone knew the exact location of the summer house and Cardross parish had expanded consistantly west.

    A tranquil little walk to Cardross isle which is now connected to the mainland leaves little evidence that this was King Robert the Bruces summer holiday island where he passed away or as they say in scots poetically was" gathered in".Nestling on the north shore of the clyde the views across the estuary are quite splendid .It is wooded with ancient trees but the beach walk is well worth the effort .
    The authority for this research is that magnificent historical researcher Nigel Tranter and his novel The Wallace. Followed by the Bruce Trilogy.
    Hope Mel Gibson or Peter Jackson use this trilogy in time for 2014 and give the Bruce back his title.Anyway Cardross and its eatheral charm will not pass you by.T
    Take the train from Glasgow Charing cross and Cardross station is on the Helensburgh line.From the station walk toward the river.
