A team of volunteers erect the east gate a fort built by Charles John Allan. He is chief and leader of the 250 strong Clanranald, a clan recreating medieval history at Duncarron Fort near Denny. Charles (or 'Chick') counts Russell Crowe among his friends having acted in numerous Hollywood blockbusters including Gladiator and Robin Hood. For over 16 years he has used around GBP 650,000, earned from movies, to construct his fort with the aim of educating his fellow Scot's about the overlooked aspects of their national history and in the process has brought together volunteers, ex-convicts and history buffs to be part of the growing family..
