William Wallace and Andrew Moray Visit Holyrood


Sculptor Malcolm Robertson brought his maquette of William Wallace and Andrew Moray entitled ‘Brothers in Arms’ to the Scottish Parliament on Thursday.


Andrew Moray was joint leader of the Scots with William Wallace in their victory over the English at the Battle of Stirling Bridge on 11 September 1297.


Moray was mortally wounded that day and although William Wallace is commemorated with statue at various locations in Scotland and even as far away as Ballarat in Australia, his co-leader, is now largely forgotten.


The Guardians of Scotland Trust is a charity set up to ensure that Andrew Moray receives the recognition he deserves.


When designing the maquette, Mr Robertson said he tried to steer away from conflict, even though it is based around a battle. Instead, he focussed on the common endeavour of the two men and the way they came together to secure victory.


The plan is to build a much larger version of the sculpture near Stirling Bridge.
