Lead On Brave Heart

This small casket burried at Melrose Abbey is believed to contain the heart of King Robert the Bruce after it had been brought back from battle in the crusades. On Robert the Bruce’s death, his heart was sent on crusade to the Holyland, where Sir James Douglas threw it before him, proclaiming "Lead on brave heart, I'll follow thee".
