A The Fortress of ^^ Dumbarton

There is a legend recorded as early as the year 388 B.C.that tells the story of a group of witches that were pursuing Saint Patrick near Glasgow, Scotland, to punish him for offending the devil with his holiness. The tale has Patrick jumping into a small boat on the Clyde River and escaping to Ireland, while the witches stood angrily on the banks, unable to cross into the water. Supposedly, they were so mad that they pulled the top off one of the nearby hills and tried to hurl it at the saint as he made his escape. However, their strength and aim were so poor that the hilltop fell right to the ground, forming a boulder that was later turned into a fortress (the Fortress of Dumbarton).
