Learn about Bannockburn

In 1314 history was made and the fate of the Scottish nation changed forever

The site under ownership of NTS is the spot where Robert Bruce planted his standard and gathered his men to take on the might of the English army led by King Edward II.

The Bannockburn visitor centre is the only place to learn about this historic battle.

School bookings are very popular and sell out approximately eight months in advance; we are now sold out for full day visits for the 2017/18 academic year, though half day visits are still available. If you would like information on how a school visit works and how you can book a visit details can be found on our learning website.
