“The Battle of Roslin took place on the 24th February 1303 and the Scots were led by The Red Comyn and Simon Fraser who led an army of 8000 Scots against an army of 30000 English soldiers.

“William Wallace was also present but no longer led the Scots after the major defeat at Falkirk. At The Battle of Roslin, despite being outnumbered, the Scots had a great victory that day.

“Many of the great Scottish patriots who fought at that battle were ill-fated, including Sir William Wallace who was betrayed and captured and who was hung, drawn and quartered at Smithfield in London on the August 23, 1305.”

There is a regular bus service to Roslin from Edinburgh city centre.
