Black Douglas or Sir James Douglas was a trusted friend of Robert The Bruce, the famous Scottish King. The first meeting of Black Douglas with ‘The Bruce’ took place only a few miles up the Tweed valley from the village of Broughton. Black Douglas was a powerful knight and one of Scotland’s heroes whose daring exploits often brought him into the Border country of Scotland, home of Broughton Ales.
