Today the sites are peaceful and calming places to walk around and learn about the characters that preserved Scotlands future. In the 700 years since the battles, Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn remain in the hearts, not just of local people, but to people from all over the world who love Scotland.
Whoever you are and wherever you are from, you are welcome to come along and enjoy a walk around Bannockburn Battlefield or Stirling Bridge.
I’ve lived in Bannockburn for nearly 20 years. I have a keen interest in Scottish history and a desire to give everyone a warm welcome. I will be sure to entertain you with stories of the main characters and the small folk who influenced and took part in the battle of Bannockburn. I walk Molly most days at the Bannockburn Battlefield and it always amazes me the number of visitors who have never heard of William Wallace’s greatest victory at Stirling Bridge. Freedom tours are the perfect way for me to welcome visitors to Bannockburn and Stirling and learn more about why so many people are passionate about Scotland.
Each tour will cover the key factors that lead up to the battles, the main characters, the battles themselves, the aftermath and the importance of the victory, then and now. I’m also very happy to spend 10 to 15 minutes chatting and answering questions about the battles, the sites, future developments in and around Bannockburn and Stirling or simply great places to visit, eat or enjoy a beer in the local area.
Please do ask questions, whether you are here for the day, a week or stay fairly local, I want you to come along and join in an unforgettable Stirling/Bannockburn day to remember!
