The Bannockburn Heritage Centre is situated at one of the most important historic sites in Scotland.
On the battlefield beside the Bannockburn Heritage Centre, in June 1314, King Robert the Bruce routed the forces of King Edward II to win freedom for the Scots from English domination.
Today, Bannockburn Heritage Centre contains an exhibition on this period of the battle and an audio-visual presentation.
Near the centre is the famous Borestone site which by tradition was Bruce’s command post before the battle. Walk the battlefield, and admire the impressive equestrian statue of Bruce by Pilkington Jackson.
Throughout the summer you can enjoy Living History presentations and mini battlefield tours. Family craft activities are available daily during the summer and at weekends the rest of the year.
Building work is underway on the brand new state-of-the-art visitor centre which is due to open in 2014, coinciding with the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn and the year of Homecoming 2014.
The existing Bannockburn Heritage Centre closes on 31st October 2012, and from autumn 2012 there will be temporary visitor facilities available on site.
