Bannockburn Heritage Centre

One of Scotland's most important historical sites, the Bannockburn Battlefield is the site where in June 1314, King Robert the Bruce of Scotland defeated the forces of the English king, Edward II and thus won freedom for the Scots from English domination. Located nearby is the Borestone site from where it is believed Bruce commanded his forces during the battle and Stirling Castle, the objective of the marauding English forces. A National Trust for Scotland site, there is a visitor centre providing an audio-visual presentation. The Bannockburn Battlefield is located to the west of the village of Bannockburn, 2 miles (3 km) south of Stirling.
