Edward, Robert The Bruce’s brother had moved a large part of his army to safer wooded lands of Slioch, south of Huntly. John Comyn seized this opportunity and assembled an army to attack Robert The Bruce. An archery battle took place without either side gaining a decisive victory, Earl’s army eventually withdrew. Battlehill is one of many historical landmarks situated in and around Huntly that holds a particular significance in the history of Scotland.
