Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Blackwaterfoot Isle of Arran
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Blackwaterfoot village at the mouth of the Black Water on the Isle of Arran, in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland. The village is within the parish of Kilmory. It is located in the Shiskine valley in the south west of the island. It is one of the smaller villages of Arran and home to one of Europe's two 12 hole golf courses. A short walk from Blackwaterfoot is Drumadoon Point, home to the largest Iron Age fort on Arran. Further North is the King's Cave, reputed to be a hiding place of Robert the Bruce. After being defeated at a battle, Bruce escaped and found a hideout in a cave. Hiding in a cave for three months, Bruce was at the lowest point of his life. He thought about leaving the country and never coming back. While waiting, he watched a spider building a web in the cave's entrance. The spider fell down time after time, but finally he succeeded with his web. So Bruce decided also to retry his fight and told his men: " If at first you don't succeed, try try and try again ", Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
