Gary Stewart has been a Trustee since 2022 and has always been interested in Scottish History, especially Wallace and De Moray. He has been a member of the Society of William Wallace for over 25 years, serving as the Convenor of the Society for the past 9 years. As Convenor of the Society, Gary has overseen three monuments that have been designed, funded, and built or negotiated. These are 'The Battle of the Bell O' the Brae' in Glasgow, the 'Wallace Oak Memorial' in Port Glasgow, and the actual remains of the Wallace Oak itself which are currently housed in Hunterston Castle in Ayrshire.
Gary says: "As much as I love the film Braveheart, it saddens me that Andrew De Moray is not in it. Because of this omission, not very many people know who Andrew De Moray is and that's a travesty, as in my opinion he is up there with William Wallace. One of the reasons we need these monuments is to educate the people of Scotland and visitors about our history. I am proud to be part of the Guardians of Scotland Trust who, through the work we are doing together, will deliver a lasting memorial to Wallace and De Moray at Stirling Bridge. Once this monument has been built I believe Andrew will get his proper place in Scottish History".
