The Battle of Inverkeithing (20 July 1651) was fought on two sites in the area, one north of the town close to Pitreavie Castle, the other to the south on and around the peninsula of North Queensferry and the isthmus connecting it to Inverkeithing.The battle took place during Oliver Cromwell's invasion of the Kingdom of Scotland following the Third English Civil War.These include the royal arms of the King of Scots, and of Queen Anabella Drummond (d.1401), the consort of Robert III (1390–1406).The high quality of the carving is explained by it being a royal gift to the parish church, Inverkeithing being a favourite residence of Queen Anabella.It’s important work and it’s very challenging.” Her 18-year-old son, Cameron Lancaster, lost his life at Prestonhill Quarry in 2014.She has since supported Water Safety Scotland’s strategy which aims to reduce the number of accidental drowning by half by 2026.Gillian Barclay is to receive an OBE for her services to dementia care and public safety.
