Here in 1314, in one of the defining moments in Scottish history, King Robert the Bruce routed the English forces of King Edward II to win a much-longed-for freedom for the Scots.
Today, in the Heritage Centre close to the Borestone (Bruce's command post for the battle), you can experience the epic encounter in an audio-visual show and exhibition.
Site: all year, daily until dusk. (car park closed December and January).
The Heritage Centre has closed to make way for a state-of-the-art visitor experience opening in 2014. A temporary information unit is on site.
Access to the site may be restricted at times, please check the website before visiting.
NTS and HS are leading a unique project to revitalise the visitor experience and mark the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn. Plans for activities and events are underway.
The official opening of the new centre will be 24 June 2014.
