Robert the Bruce's palace found

Lost for more than 700 years, the palace of Robert the Bruce may have been discovered in Renton "a run-down area of West Dunbartonshire." Experts have found artifacts and foundations matching historic documents relating to the Bruce's home.

"'The 1362 charter states that Robert the Bruce resided between Kings Park of Cardross and the lands of Pillanflatt, bounding the lands of Dalquhurn,' said historian Stuart Smith, who has studied the Bruce family for 35 years." The foundations were recently uncovered during a building project.
