23/08/19 at 7:00 pm - Another year, the fourth now, when we lay our white roses at Cambuskenneth Abbey where legend states that the arm of Wallace was buried, taken by the monks of the Abbey from Stirling Bridge.
A wonderful night and, blessed with the weather again, George Kempik - who has successfully run this event for the last 4 years, started proceedings off with a great speech and was then followed up by our guest from Liechtenstein, Patrick Herman, who if you think last year was not great at speaking in English shows how big an achiever he is. Up next was our convenor Gary Stewart who gave his thoughts on what he called a special place to him, and then George finished off and invited people up to say a few words. Following this, Gordon Aitken led the crowd in a rendition of 'Scots Wha Hae'.
We ended proceedings and placed our roses on the stone that marks the spot where his arm was buried. Till next year...
