Following the Battle of Dunbar I in 1296, Scotland was in a state of political and economic instability. The Guardians of Scotland, including William Wallace and John Comyn, had consistently struggled to rid the country of English invaders and restore John Balliol as the rightful King of Scotland. This process commenced with the expulsion of all English governors, justices and sheriffs previously put in place by Edward I from Scottish towns and castles. This situation continued for two years, before Edward sent Ralph Confray north into Scotland.
Contemporary English writers make scant mention of the numerous hostilities during this period, in which the Scots inflicted defeats upon Edward I's forces. Only two battles are relatively well recorded, the Battle of Stirling Bridge, where half of the English army under the command of Hugh Cressingham was slaughtered and the Battle of Roslin, where a Scottish army consisting of around 8,000 men routed a large mounted English army of up to 300,000.....
Fighting is also associated with the Hewan Bog, a defile and area of boggy ground over to the eastern part of the area. The Killburne (NT 273 640), is said to have run red with blood for three days following the battle. Tradition has it that Mound Marl (or Mount Marl, or Mountmarle NT 279 639), today the site of the animal research centre, also has as strong association with the conflict. This is said to have acquired its name late in the battle, as the English forces began to waver. At this point, one of the English leaders, Marl, was advised by a retainer to flee, crying "Mount Marl, and ride!"
