About The Battle Of Bannockburn Visitor Centre
In June 1314 the history of Scotland as a nation was about to change forever.
It was at the Battle of Bannockburn that Robert Bruce, King of Scots, would face down the English army led by Edward II.
Edward, keen to retain the stronghold of Stirling Castle, had led a huge army through Scotland to lift the Scots’ siege of his garrison at the Castle.Over the two days of battle, 23-24 June, Edward’s army was repeatedly thwarted by the Scots stubborn resistance before finally finding themselves trapped by the surrounding terrain with no room to manoeuvre their huge force.
The result was an unprecedented rout of King Edward’s army.
Located near the historic city of Stirling, the battleground still evokes the landscape that would have been seen by medieval soldiers in 1314 when the area was a royal hunting park.
Pre-booking is essential for Battle Room Experiences.
Centre is closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and 2 January.
