Bannockburn Visitor Centre
Bannockburn is the battle fought in sight of Stirling Castle in June 1314 when a Scottish army commanded by Robert the Bruce defeated the English. It is a battle that is a source of great pride to Scotland. The National Trust for Scotland has built a heritage centre at the site of the battle with a bronze equestrian statue of King Robert the Bruce and lifelike displays of Scottish history: the Scottish nobles signing the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320; Robert the Bruce being crowned king of Scotland at Scone; and William Wallace with his famous sword.
