Where the babbling burn "Glazert" winds round a small rise, through the  green countryside of East Ayrshire, there is a place...a place where Celtic men and women defended their homes and families 1,000-2,000 years ago. Against the painted Picts, the Brits of Strathclyde, the Gaels of Ireland, the Angles, the Romans and the Vikings, they stood in this place, this fort of stone and mud, this insignificant small hill and paid for these lands with sinew and steel and blood! They gave this place a Name, these Celts:

...a name that would be carried by thousands down the Halls of Time


                       ...To Ireland, America, Canada, Australia

                           ...a Name that we know well...for it is ours

the Place, the Name
