Bannockburn is mainly recalled for the spectacular victory that occurred here in June 1314. This is emphasised by the image on the sign for Bannockburn which says "Bannockburn Worthy and Strong", and shows a picture of a battle taking place in the distance.
Bannockburn is a small village connected to Hillpark and Whins of Milton and sits side by side with St. Ninians. It is one of two main roads into the main town - now titled 'City' - of Stirling.
When in Bannockburn, you can see clearly a view of the famous Wallace Monument at one side of Stirling and the Stirling Castle at the other.
Visitors to Bannockburn are definitely recommended to take a walk down the footpaths by the burn, where they will find some lovely scenery and a great sense of peace and nature.
