INTRODUCTION

700 Yrs Ago On The 4th August 1305 at Midnight and After , A Man Called William Wallace was Ambushed and Captured at Robroyston Near Glasgow by The Scottish Nobility

His Men were Cut Down and Murdered in Front of Him and Eventually After Much Fighting and Death to Longshanks Soldiers , Wallace was Captured after 9 yrs as an Outlaw

He was Sent for Trial in England for Treason , Theft , Rape , Murder , Plunder , Descreation of Holy Bulidings , Stealing of Holy Relics

There was No Trial , but just Sheer Humilation to a Man Standing Alone Among The Enemy

As All The Above were The Actions that Longshanks Did to Scotland

This was a Man who had Prepared Himself for Death by Remaining Loyal to All He Believed in FREEDOM AND SCOTLAND

WALLACES OUTLAWED YEARS 1298 to 1305

Wallace had been an Outlaw for 7 Years since Falkirk which was The Battle in 1298 which left Wallace Stranded on a Battlefield watching His Men being Murdered

Wallace was Outlawed after Falkirk and Spent Years on The Run through The Highlands Ambushing Longshanks Soldiers of Horses, Weapons , Food and Surviving by The Generosity of The Highlanders

Wallace during The Stirling and Falkirk Years was The King of Scots and as much as The Crown of Scotland

Namely The Stone of Scone The Fake One was Stolen by Longshanks in 1296 and the Stripping of John Balliol as The King of Scots left Scotland without a Crown , Ruling Monarch or Government

Wallace was a Natural King Loved by The People , but Ruling with an Iron Hand , Supported by Few Nobility , but Supported by Thousands of Highlanders

During those Pre Stirling Years Wallace was already Ambushing Longshanks Soldiers in Raids of Plunder

After Stirling , Wallace for 10 Months was made The King of Scots through Him being Crowned Guardian and High Protector of Scotland

Wallace was not fooled by This Crowning , as Few Nobility Supported Him and They Hated His Politics

As it Meant they had to Align to Him and not Share Allegiance with Longshanks and His Empty Promises and Riches

The Only Reason why most Nobility Flattered Wallace with Attention was from the point that He had Made Himself Cannon Fodder

And The Nobles were Happy Enough to leave The Responsibility of Scotlands War and Death to Him

As They Saw through The Saving of Scotland as a Futile Illusion , for They were already Bought and Sold by Longshanks

Wallace had 10 Months as King of Scots Supported not by The Nobility or The Bruce or Foreign Aid , but by His Own True Highland Army and Ingenuity
]
After Falkirk Wallace was Outlawed and Forced to Live On The Run , Scotland was Once Again Ruled by Longshanks and The Nobility

Wallace had much Support from The House of Stewart who lived at Traquair House on The Borders of Ettrick Forest , Lands which Wallace used to Hide and Plan His Ambushes Prior to Stirling

The Clan Wallace before William was Born were Vassels to The High Stewarts and Gained Lands in Ayrshire and Renfrewshire , Due to This Connection

Hence why Wallace was Born in Elderslie in Renfrew to The House of Riccarton

The House of Stewart Supported Wallaces Claim to Conquering The English at Stirling Castle and Gave Food and Arms to Wallace during The Months Leading Up to Stirling

The House of Stewart was Persecuted by The Scottish Nobility and Clans Loyal to Longshanks , due to Their Support of Wallace

This Reflected in Their Defiance of English Rule 450 later in The Jacobite Years in 1644 to 1746 as James Stewart and Prince Charles Both had Rebellions and Wars in Reclaiming The Throne in 1715 , 1719 and 1745 / 46

Wallace after Falkirk was More Sought After than Before , A Wanted Man to the point of The Village of Lanark being Continually Raided by Longshanks which was where the Original Rebellion Began

When Wallaces Lady Friend was Murdered by The English Lord and Sherrif for Protecting Wallace from being Arrested

Which led to Wallace Murdering The Sheriff and His Garrison and Sacking Lanark the Same Night

Lanark was Constantly Raided After This and Soldiers would Question The Highlanders of Wallaces Whereabouts

Wallace had Decided to Seek Help Outside of Scotland After Falkirk in 1298 from The German Government , Rome and France

But Not One Country wanted to give Arms , Men Supplies or a Seal of Protection For Scotland from The Pope, due to Their Own Fear of Becoming an Enemy to Longshanks

Wallace Said They could Trade and do Business and They could Support Scotland in this way , but still The Governments Refused to participate in a War against England

Wallace Returned from Europe still a Hunted Man , the Next 5 Years for Wallace until 1305 were spent Ambushing and Killing Soldiers who came to Scotland to Persecute The Highlanders or Hunting Wallace Himself

Wallace was in His Mid 30s , His Hardships , Trials and Persecutions seemed to have been there since a Child

This is Why Learning of Map Reading , Gaelic , Latin and Philosophy were Some of The Skills Wallace had Learnt , rather than Just Playing in The Fields as Most Children Do

Wallace had been Given Personal Tuition by His Uncle a Priest in The Arts of Ambush , War Tactics , Sword Fighting , Map Reading and had Learnt Holy Scriptures in Latin

Wallace was a Cultured Soul and Well Learned in Battlefield Tactics which led Him to Creating The Schiltrom

The Human 14 Foot Spear Defence Mechanism which Walked on The Field , Destroying any Calvary Charge or Heavy Horse which was First Used at Stirling

Wallace Now in 1305 was Virtually Destitute of Weapons , Men and Army

The Loyal Highlanders were Exhausted , Tired Cold Hungry Men who would Die for Wallace and Scotland , rather than Live in Longshanks Regime which He was Creating in Scotland

Wallace had been told by Highlanders in Lanark and Perth , that Scottish Nobles had been Trying to Find Him as They Wished to Give Him Support in The Form of Men , Arms and Supplies

They Said Longshanks was not Truthful and had Lied to Them and They wished to Join Forces with Wallace to Start a New Rebellion

Most Highlanders Listened and Walked Away Saying ,They were All Wolves Gathering For Lambing

Wallace Heard of Their Need to Meet and was Given a Parchment Scroll which have a Meeting Time and Place with a Promise of Men , Arms , Horses , Food and Plaid

The Meeting was to Take Place on The 4th August at Robroyston near Glasgow

Wallace was Suspicious as Were His Men of Why Would They Want to Meet so Far when They Could Meet in Perth or Stirling

Wallace had a Week to Decide on His Action , His Men Talked to Him Saying Not to Go as it was an Ambush

Wallace due to His Support of The Nobility or John Balliol The King of Scots till 1296 was still Loyal to That Spirit and made The Decision to Go with that Faith He Had

Wallace Thought that if They had been sent then , Balliol was wanting to Rise to The Throne Again and These must have been His Nobles

For Most Nobles were Forced to Sign The Ragman Roll , a Scroll with a List of over 100 Leading Nobles who Bowed to Longshanks Terms in 1296 , for Land , Titles and Gold

Wallace in One Sense was Misguided in His Loyalty in The Crown and Deciding to Meet The Nobles was Going to Destroy The Old Scotland Forever

Wallace had a Gathering and Heard His Mens Opinions who Said They will Ambush You , Kill You or Ambush You and Hand You Over to Longshanks

Wallace Said He Needed 30 Men to go with Him which was a Sign to Wallaces Men that He was not listening to Their Opinion

His Leading Commanders Said , You will be Outnumbered , We Should Come and Lie in Wait

Wallace Picked 30 of His Strongest Men and Marched on Horse and Foot for 3 Days to Robroyston Skirting The Villages close to Glasgow

They Reached Robroyston on The 2nd August in Late Afternoon , Wallace Saw The Croft Sitting in The Glen and Sensed The Energy of Still Silence and a Cold Chill was in The Atmosphere

Wallace Noticed His Horse was Braying , Shaking His Head and Stamping His Foot , The Other Highlanders Noticed The Way The Birds Flew into The Skye in a Flock Calling Each Other

His Leading Commander told Him in Gaelic , We Should Leave Now

Wallace Said , Tie The Horses and Check The Croft and Trees

Wallace Rode round the Perimeter of The Forest and Croft and Checked The Trees and Undergrowth to Where He could Place His Men

The Men Came Out of The Croft Saying , There was No Wood For The Fire or Water Stored

Wallace felt The Energy and Sensed He Should Leave , but a Part of Him was Loyal to that Fight and The Use of The Nobles Power to Gain that Fight for Freedom

Wallaces Horse was still Uneasy and as Wallace Tied Him to a Tree , He gave Wallace a Look and Shook His Head and Swished His Tail ,

Wallace Touched His Head and Spoke to Him in Gaelic to Comfort Him , but He also Felt The Sweat on The Horses Coat Indicating The Horses Knowingness to Death

The Horse still Looked at Him Braying Quietly , making Ruts in the Ground with His Hoof indicating The Enemy are From Hell and The Devil , Wallace took His Saddle from The Horse to Allow Him to Rest

Wallace Joined His Men and They Sat Around The Fire Cooking Some Meat

Wallace was Told

We Should Leave Now while We are All Alive , Its Cold in Here Even with The Fire On , The Devil is Watching Us , Said One of Wallaces Men as He Watched Dark Shadows on The Far Wall

The Night Came and All was Quiet

Wallace Placed 20 Sentries in a Circle Around The Croft Hidden in The Trees Round The Croft Every 10 yards , 10 of His Men were in The Croft with Him with One Every Hour Taking Watch until the Daylight Hours

By The 3rd August Evening Wallace and His Men Now Rested , Wallace felt The Shift in Energy and Sensed that Deathly Smell which He had Smelt Before Battle ,

He Sensed The Wind as it Picked Up before a Storm and The Fire and Flames Kept Blowing in a Westerly Direction

He Noticed how The Smoke Kept Blowing into The Croft and Forcing Wallace and His Men to Keep The Door Open or To Sit Outside

His Men Said , The Devil is Amongst Us

Later on That Evening a Rider came to The Croft Saying , The Nobles would Meet with Wallace at Midnight and After as They had Wagons of Supplies and Men to Walk from Glasgow

Wallace was Now Suspicious as to why The Rider was not Muddy or Dusty or Why His Horse and Saddle was so Clean after being in The Saddle for Two Days

Wallace Instinctively Touched The Blade of His Sword on His Back

The Rider went Away after leaving a Parchment Scroll Explaining , How Many Men and Supplies They had for Wallace, Signed by John Menteith and was Tied with a Cord in The Middle

Wallaces Leading Commander Said , We Should Leave Now , This is An Ambush , You could See He is to Clean and The Horse is Unmarked to Have Ridden from Glasgow

His Men who had Listened to The Nobles Rider and heard What Wallaces Commander Said Sensed An Ending and a Coldness

The Horses were Now Pulling at Their Ropes that Tied Them to The Trees which was The Sign to The Highlanders of The Devil Being Around Them

For in Ancient Scotland a Horses Head if Presented to an Enemy or Left on an Enemys Doorstep was The Sign of Death and Ropes were The Sign of The Devil Pulling The Soul and Body to Death and Hell

Just as a Bulls Head was The Same Symbol of Presentation to an Enemy, Meaning War was upon The Enemy or Clan

Hence Why The Horses were Pulling at Their Ropes and Bridles to Break Free of The Restrictions They Could Sense and Feel

Wallace Said , Calm The Horses and Wait

On The 4th August 1305 Gone Midnight , Wallaces Men Now Waiting Outside Hidden in The Trees , Saw Riders Approaching , They were Scottish Nobles on Their Own

They Had Soldiers Flanking The Croft through The Trees and Undergrowth which Outnumbered Wallaces Men

They Rode to The Croft to Meet The Outlawed King of Scots

WALLACES AMBUSH AT ROBROYSTON

AT MIDNIGHT AND AFTER ON THE 4th AUGUST 1305

On an Early August Summers Night when it was Late
Wallace Sat in a Croft near Glasgow with His Men having to Wait
He was Due to Meet The Nobles who Promised to Support Him at Falkirk
Who had Betrayed Him and Now Wanted to give Him Men , Sword and Dirks

The Hours went by with Wallace Sitting Round a Fire which was Warm
He put Men Outside in The Trees to Watch for The Nobles till Morn
Wallace Did Not Trust Them and Sat in The Croft with His Hand on Sword
His Mind Now was Free and Alone to Trust Only Claymore and The Lord

Wallaces Men came into The Croft and Said , There Were Horses Coming
Wallace Stood Up and Said , Keep Watch All Ways , His Suspicions Humming
His Men Looked at Wallace and Saw Something Uneasy in His Face
Wallace had felt The Energy and Saw that Death was No Longer a Chase

Wallace Ordered His Men to Stand Guard to The Right and Left of The Door
For He had Suspected Betrayal like Before and Hid Dirks in The Earthy Floor
There was a Scream Outside and Shouts from The Nobles to Take Wallace Alive
His Men were Cut Down as They Came Out of The Trees with Sharp Knives

Wallace was Cornered in The Croft with The Soldiers Surrounding The Doors
Making a Decision as to which Action to Take was it a Mind or Body War
The Nobles Said, You are Surrounded and Your Men are Dead on The Ground
Wallace Heard The Voice of a Scots Noble and Then Silence was The Sound

The Candle had Blown Out and Wallace with Two Men were Now in Darkness
The Fire was Sparking and Wallace Saw The Face of His Horse and Harness
His Two Men Stood in Front as The Soldiers Smashed The Door to Come In
His Men Cut The First Two Soldiers to The Bone Their Life Force Now Thin

The Croft Being in Darkness Allowed Wallace to Prepare His Arms and Sword
His Men Fought at The Door with Five Men Trying to Steal The Golden Hoard
This Being Wallace which is Why His Men Fought to The Death to Protect
The Great Legend and King of Scots to Stop Longshanks Coming to Collect

Wallaces Men were Killed After They Killed Seven of Longshanks Men
Wallace Fought with One and Cut His Head from His Throat in The Bloody Glen
He Pulled His Dirk on Another and Stabbed Him Through The Heart and Chest
Wallace Felt His Energy Rise and His Horse Braying Telling Him to Go West

Wallace was Now Surrounded by 5 Men who had Their Hands Ready to Grab
Wallace Swung Claymore and Cut One to The Bone as He Fell on The Stone Slab
The Shouts of The Nobles to Get Wallace Before More of His Men Came
Meant Wallace was Fighting to The Death so He Could be Proud of His Name

Wallace Swung His Claymore Cutting a Mans Face in Half to The Throat
The Blood Flew in The Air and Flowed Like Water Round a Moat
More Men Came to Grab Wallace as He Swung a Right Hand and Punch
The Man Knocked to The Floor in a Daze Wallace Heard His Bones Crunch

A Man Tried to Go Behind Wallace as He was in The Corner of The Croft
Wallaces Left Hand Stabbed Him in The Arm where it was Bloody and Soft
The Man Let Go and Wallace Punched Him in The Face and Broke His Nose
Wallaces Vision Came to Him of The Fight For The Saltire and Celtic Rose

Menteith Ordered Them to Fight and get Wallace to The Ground
He Stood Away and Watched as Wallace was Fought and Bound
Wallace being as Strong as He Was Had a Soldier by The Throat
Squeezing Him to Death with a Look which was Happy to Gloat

As Men Lay Dying on The Ground Wallace was Tied and Bound
He Said In Gaelic, Alba Goo Brach to Menteith This The Only Sound
As Wallace Lay There One of His Men Came Through The Door to See
He was Hit from Behind by a Stave of Wood and Saw Wallace No Longer Free

Wallace Saw His Pain as He was Hit from Behind and Felt His Life Force Die
Wallace Said A Prayer , May The Lord Bless Thee And Keep Thee with a Sigh
Menteith was in a hurry to Get Wallace Out of The Croft Away from His Camp
He Said to His Men , We will Ride in Darkness its Safer without a Lamp

Wallace was Bound to The Horse and Saw His Men Lying on The Ground
Their Torn Plaids and Swords Lay On The Earth in a Bloody Mound
Wallace Sat There Looking at The Croft Knowing He was on His Way
To His Death Far from Scotland Alba Goo Brach was All He Could Say

As The Soldiers Pushed Wallace to Ride, The Legend was Now Alone
He Sat There with Ropes Biting into His Flesh , Cutting to The Bone
A Man who was The King of Scots, Outlawed, Murdered for All to See
Wallace Rode in The Dark Thinking of His War Fighting for Alba to be Free
