The Declaration of Arbroath text illuminates the ‘braveheart’ of Scotland’s history and fight for independence…
“…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.” – Extract from the Declaration of Arbroath, 1320.
