    700 years after the legendary battle, the new Battle of Bannockburn experience puts you right at the heart of the action.  Using cutting edge 3D technology you can learn about this crucial event in Scottish history and experience medieval combat like never before.  You'll even be able to take command of the knights and soldiers who fought in 1314, pitting your wits against fellow visitors on the virtual battlefield. The experience is as authentic as it is breathtaking.

    The landscaping and parkland around the centre allow visitors to appreciate the battleground and restored commemorative monuments, including an iconic statue of Robert the Bruce cast in shimmering bronze. It's a place for quiet contemplation or to catch your breath from the excitement inside.
