Bannockburn

Bannockburn Heritage Centre
Glasgow Road
Stirling
FK7 0LJ

From this battlefield the Scots 'sent them homeward to think again', when Edward II's English army was soundly defeated by King Robert the Bruce. This brought the independence for which William Wallace had also fought.

The Heritage Centre exhibition includes a large model of the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and exciting life-size figures of Wallace and Bruce. It brings to life decisive moments in Scotland's history, including the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath which inspired Thomas Jefferson when he drew up the American Declaration of Independence. An audio-visual presentation tells the dramatic story of Bruce and of the battle, with haunting sounds and images.
