Your Visit

The Landscape

No visit to Bannockburn would be complete without taking the short walk from the Visitor Centre to the historic landscape and battlefield.

Visitors can see the saltire flying proudly in the centre of the Rotunda, with its outlook to Stirling Castle, and the iconic Bruce Monument. The landscape has been restored and reinterpreted to commemorate the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn. Access to the landscape and monuments is free to all visitors.

Please note: For safety reasons, during periods of high winds we are unable to fly the flag.
