Tour Bannockburn

Bannockburn is a name that has been on the lips of
generations of Scottish schoolchildren. The name
represents Scotland’s most important victory over the
English in 1314. The battlefield, where Robert the
Bruce routed the forces of Edward II and won freedom
for the Scottish people, is one of the most important
historic sites in Britain.

Bannockburn Heritage Centre stands a few yards
from the famous Borestone site, the reputed location
of Bruce’s command-post. It is enclosed by the rotunda
focusing on the approach route of the English army to
Stirling Castle. The rotunda was opened by the Queen
in 1964, when she unveiled a statue to Scotland’s most
celebrated king.

The centre displays an exhibition relating the story of
the battle in three languages, and an exhibition entitled
The Kingdom of the Scots.
