“Bothwell is rich in historic associations. The name of the patriot and the oppressor are for ever united with it. Here Edward I. and the instruments of his tyranny held guilty deliberations, and from here they issued forth to oppress and destroy. Here resided Sir Andrew Murray, one of the earliest and most valuable of Wallace’s compatriots, and his son, the regent, the protector alike of the kingdom, and of the son of the noble Bruce. Here was displayed the grandeur of the haughty Douglases, who vied with the splendour of royalty.”

Descriptive letterpress, from 'Photographs of the Clyde'
