BRAVEHEART @ MacBraveHeart ~ Keeping alive the spirit of Braveheart ~
'You've come to the right place, then ...' 
(to help achieve Scottish Independence in 2014

Welcome to John & Lin Anderson's 'unofficial' official Braveheart website since 1995. The MacBraveHeart webpages are dedicated to keeping alive the spirit of Braveheart, and to the interest in Scottish history and identity which Braveheart has helped awaken.

In the years since setting up the MacBraveHeart website, and organising the 1997 and 2000 Braveheart Conventions, Lin Anderson has become a best-selling crime-writer, with her books sold in English and in translation in many parts of the world.

Lin Anderson's BRAVEHEART book is now on sale as an eBook at the  UK Kindle Store, and  at the USA Kindle Store.

If you arrived at our website purely to visit our Braveheart Museum, and have no interest in the modern-day struggle for Scottish Independence, now reaching its climax, please skip this bit and read on further down the page.

Some of you may have realised that the mainstream media (BBC TV & radio, most newspaper coverage) isn't telling the whole truth where the September 2014 referendum on Independence is involved. If you are seeking information on what is actually happening on the ground in the Referendum campaigns, and seek a balance of information to help you make up your mind as a voter, start by having a look at the websites below. If you then feel like doing your bit to ensure we create a better Scotland in the future, please tweet and share links to these websites, blogs and movies, as widely as possible:-


Wings Over Scotland | Newsnet Scotland | Bella Celedonia | Derek Bateman Blog | BBC Scotlandshire (Satire Warning)
Business for Scotland | Independence March September 2013 Movie

The YES campaign is a grass-roots campaign being organised and assisted by thousands of people across Scotland and beyond, of all poltical parties (and none), and from all ages and walks of life. Therein lies its strength, and why it will win, despite all the power of the British State working against it.

Also, please watch enjoy, and share 'Make Alba Shine' :-
