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 to the area. I will be sure to entertain you with stories of the King Robert the Bruce and the other main characters and the small folk who influenced and took part in the battle of Bannockburn. I shall also remember our other great champion, Andrew de Moray for the part he played in the North Rising and joining forces with William Wallace at the Battle of Stirling Bridge.
I walk Molly most days at the Bannockburn Battlefield and I’m amazed at the number of tourists who spend less than 10 minutes at the Battlefield or who have never heard of William Wallace’s greatest victory at Stirling Bridge. Participating in the annual commemorations to both battles, I realise the importance of remebering our past heroes to help keep their stories alive. Freedom tours are the perfect way for me to welcome visitors to Bannockburn and Stirling, tell the stories of events that shaped these battles and learn more about why so many people are passionate about Scotland.
Molly, our Irish lab/collie rescue dog can usually be found leading at least one tour a day. A descendant of Edward Bruce from his time in Ireland shortly after the Battle of Bannockburn, Molly is happy to share her treats with other 4 legged friends.
