But why Bruce? Well, 2024 will mark 750 years since the Birth of arguably Scotland’s greatest
King, Robert the Bruce. It is widely believed by a number of historians that Robert the Bruce
was born at Turnberry Castle in North Carrick, and it is a well-known fact that Bruce spent his
childhood at Turnberry and was connected to North Carrick over the course of his life, most
notably being the first Earl of Carrick when the title became associated with the crown.
North Carrick are celebrating this milestone by hosting a series of events which began in January 2024 with Brucie Burns Supper and a Quiz Tournament - with a Bruce Festival planned in Maybole for 13th July 2024. Don’t forget to follow us on social media to keep up to date with the
programme of events!
