Neil Robert­son and David Weinc­zok Two his­tory-mad blog­gers are head­ing to Lochmaben as part of a na­tion­wide whistlestop Robert the Bruce tour.

Neil Robert­son and David Weinc­zok are bid­ding to visit as many film and real-life lo­ca­tions con­nected to the king of Scots in 36 hours – in­clud­ing Lochmaben.

The cas­tle was the seat of the Bruce throne for around 150 years un­til the fate­ful mur­der of John Comyn in Dum­fries in 1306, which even­tu­ally saw Ed­ward I hand con­trol of the cas­tle to the Earl of Here­ford.

Neil and David, who form part of the so­cial me­dia col­lec­tive Scot­landers, are taking on a chal­lenge set by Vis­itScot­land to cel­e­brate the re­lease of Out­law King on Net­flix.

They start at 10am to­mor­row, work­ing their way through sites in­clud­ing Ban­nock­burn, Glas­gow Cathe­dral, Scone Palace and Dun­fermline Abbey, the king’s rest­ing place.
