The only place in Scotland where 3D technology and medieval warriors meet

The new Visitor Centre

About the centre
Inspired by traditional Scottish architecture

For new or returning visitors, this cutting edge visitor centre with state-of-the-art 3D battle simulation completely changes the way you experience Bannockburn.

Outdoors, the landscaping and parkland around the centre allows visitors to appreciate the battleground and restored commemorative monuments; including an iconic statue of Robert the Bruce cast in shimmering bronze.

The Experience

The experience
A compelling and realistic medieval battle

More than 700 years after the bloody battle took place, the Bannockburn experience harnesses 3D technology to bring Scottish history to life.

Stand should-to-shoulder with medieval warriors and armoured knights while observing the tactics of two opposing kings in a truly immersive battle experience.

Witness the sights and sounds of medieval battle first-hand including ancient battle strategies, weapons and armour.

Led by our ‘Battlemaster’, this interactive simulation allows you to take command of the knights and soldiers who fought in 1314, pitting your wits against fellow visitors on the virtual battlefield.
