Bruce - 700 Anniversary

Robert the Bruce

In March 2006 we celebrated 700 anniversary of Robert the Bruce being crowned King of Scotland at Scone, Perthshire, on March 27, 1306.

Bruce’s finest hour, the Battle of Bannockburn (1314), changed the course of Scottish and British history.   Thousands of visitors come every year to Bannockburn near Stirling to experience the very place where Robert the Bruce’s 12 000 warriors beat the English King Edward II’s 40 000-strong army.
