In 1308, West of here and probably / a little to the East of the falls of Cruachan, / King Robert the Bruce won a decisive victory / over John of Lorn, last remaining leader of / the House of Comyn faction opposed to / Bruce's Kingship. / John of Lorn's forces had a strong position / on the slopes of Cruachan, but were out- / flanked from above Highlanders and / Borderers under Sir James Douglas. / Their victory enabled King Robert to unite the / Scots behind him against the English invader.
