The story of an Ulster island, a King in exile, a determined spider... and the greatest military triumph in Scotland’s history.

Exactly 700 years ago, King Robert the Bruce was on Rathlin Island, just off the coast of County Antrim, planning his return to Scotland. The event is being celebrated in a number of exciting events this summer!
