Go Back!

When the Roman Legions invaded Scotland they were faced by the Picts and had great difficulty in subduing the blue woad painted warriors.

The story goes that one Roman Legion marching near Bennachie saw through the mist a lone lone Pictish warrior on the hillside. The Roman Commander immediately dispatched two men to capture him. They failed to return but the Pictish warrior was spotted once again. He sent four men but they too failed to return. Once again the Pictish warrior was seen making his way along the hillside. The Commander then sent eight men. The sound of battle echoed through the mist and eventually a blood-stained Roman Legionairre staggered back to his waiting companions with these alarming words -
        "Go back! Go back! Its an ambush - there's two of them."
