Just a few miles from Stirling, this small village has one of the most famous names in Scottish history. So-called because of a stream called the Bannock Burn, it was the site of the famous Battle of Bannockburn, which saw Robert the Bruce’s courageous pikemen rout a powerful English army led by Edward 11 on June 24th, 1314. As the climax to the Wars of Independence, it paved the way for a united Scotland.

This titanic struggle is remembered at a heritage centre which tells the full story of the consequences of that bloodcurdling day. Bruce is now just a statue on horseback.
