Note
According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Bruce,_1st_Baron_of_Clackmannan King David II of Scotland, near the end of his life, appears to have regarded Thomas as the next most senior member of the Bruce family, but his exact relationship to the royal Bruces is unclear. It has been suggested that he was the son of an illegitimate son of Robert the Bruce or Edward Bruce, but there is no clear evidence for this, he may have belonged to a more distant branch of the family. Thomas was granted land in Clackmannan by King Robert II of Scotland after organising a revolt against the English in 1334. He married Marjorie Charteris of Stenhouse and it is from this line which most Bruces descend, including the current Chief of the Clan, Andrew Bruce, 11th Earl of Elgin.[3] Thomas and Marjorie's children included Robert Bruce, 2nd Baron of Clackmannan.[1]

Clackmannan Tower is a five-storey tower house, situated at the summit of King's Seat Hill in Clackmannan, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. It was built in the 14th century by King David II of Scotland and sold to his cousin Robert Bruce in 1359.
