Tour Scotland video of the Sir George Bruce Tomb in Abbey Church Culross, Fife, Scotland. Sir George Bruce of Carnock, born 1550, died 1625, was a Scottish merchant and engineer. He was born in Carnock, near Dunfermline. King James VI, on a royal visit by to Culross, was invited by Sir George Bruce to visit one of his mines which tunnelled down beneath the sea bed. The King ventured into the tunnel which went far out into the Firth of Forth and found himself at a shaft point where the coal was loaded onto the ships. Alarmed to find himself surrounded by water at the top of the shaft, his Highness accused Sir George of an attempt on his life and declared that the whole affair was an act of treason! It was only when Sir George pointed out the rowing boat and explained that one could either use that or return by the tunnel from whence they came that the King relaxed again, and took the option of the boat journey.
