BannockburnBattle of Bannockburn

Past visitors to the old Bannockburn Visitor Centre on the Glasgow Road - which celebrated King Robert the Bruce's victory against the armies of Edward II, in 1314, and brought an end to the Wars of Independence with England - are in for something of a surprise...with the opening, this year, of the new Battle of Bannockburn attraction. Medieval warfare has just gone high-tech!

The famous statue of of The Bruce, astride his stately steed, has been given a good polish. He's not the only thing that is bright and shiny. The old static displays are gone, replaced with interactive 3D CGI-generated views of the battle, and of those who lived and died on the field...and visitors can play their part, taking command of archers, cavalry and foot-soldiers on both sides as part of computerised war games...guided by the passionate and knowledgeable Games Master.

As someone once said 'everything old is new again'!
