2008 - London, Paris & Amsterdam : Bannockburn & Stirling Castle

The Battle of Bannockburn

It was at the Battle of Bannockburn that Robert Bruce, King of Scots, would face down the English army led by Edward II. 

Edward, keen to retain the stronghold of Stirling Castle, had led a huge army through Scotland to lift the Scots’ siege of his garrison at the Castle. 

Achieving this was vital to Edward’s hopes of re-establishing his weakening grip on the country, but he was stopped short by the army of Robert Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn.
