AN ANCIENT CRY FOR FREEDOM! Woven into the yarns of time. A kilt for a generation …after generations.

-

Inspirited by the very script, and penmanship …of that ancient letter. Memorialising the Scots of old who died fighting for Freedom, remembering their spilled blood. The seals of Barons and Nobels, who pledged allegiance to a rebel King. Scotland’s most treasured and ancient artefact - THE DECLARATION OF ARBROATH.

-

"for, as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself".

-

The Declaration is a letter written in 1320 by the barons and whole community of the kingdom of Scotland to the pope, asking him to recognise Scotland's independence and acknowledge Robert the Bruce as the country's lawful king.

-

The Declaration of Arbroath is - Crown Copyright, National Records of Scotland.
