For the first time ever, Bannockburn near Stirling is celebrating the life of Scotland’s National Bard with a Burns Supper Drive Thru.
The event takes place on Saturday 25 January from 3.30pm until 6.30pm and will be hosted by the National Trust for Scotland, who care for the multi-award-winning site of Robert the Bruce’s greatest victory.
Visitors can drive into the grounds and order a traditional Burns Supper of haggis, neeps and tatties without having to leave their car. Demonstrating the finest in Caledonian cuisine each meal also comes complete with an Irn Bru and a Tunnock’s Teacake.
For those looking for a modern twist on the traditional offering, there will also be haggis bon bons, skinny fries and a mustard mayo dip. For a less traditional alternative, there will also be chicken goujons for children. Vegetarian and gluten free options will also be available.
While drivers and passengers wait on their delicious meal, there will be circus style entertainment on show and traditional Scottish music playing which visitors can enjoy without leaving their car.
Driving isn’t a compulsory either. The supper is available for people arriving by foot, bike or even on horseback like Tam o’ Shanter.
Cara Stewart, Forth Valley Operations Manager at National Trust for Scotland said “Bannockburn offers the perfect setting for an exciting Burns Supper drive thru. Food is a big part of any Burns celebration, and this event allows people to experience tradition as well as live entertainment and music – all from the comfort of their own car.”
“We’re looking forward to offering locals and those from further afield the chance to take part in a Burns celebration like no other and events like this truly help our charity to protect Bannockburn and Scotland’s other special places.”
No booking or entry fee is required for the Burns Supper Drive Thru.
The Battle of Bannockburn museum is a fully immersive experience located on the site of Robert the Bruce’s greatest victory. Putting visitors at the heart of the action with cutting edge 3D technology, the museum highlights the battle against King Edward II in 1314, a crucial moment in Scottish history. Visitors can also walk on the battlefield through landscaped parkland and see the restored iconic bronze statue of Robert the Bruce.
