Robert The Bruce Monument At Stirling castle - Stirling
Stirling's central Scotland position, combined with its natural hills and rocks providing a strategic location for Stirling Castle have seen it at the centre of Scottish history for centuries. Two of Scotland's most famous battles took place in the area - the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 when William Wallace defeated the English, and perhaps Scotland's most important battle on Scottish soil - the Battle of Bannockburn. Here at Bannockburn, with strategic Stirling Castle in view, Robert the Bruce led the Scots to victory in 1314 against the English force under Edward II. At Bannockburn the Scots were considerably outnumbered by the English, and the victory was testament to the skilled command of Bruce. The Declaration of Arbroath followed some years later, and the English were forced to accept Scottish Independence. The two key sites of particular historic interest are Stirling Castle high above Stirling town, and the Battle of Bannockburn Heritage Centre just outside Stirling. Superb views of the William Wallace Monument in Stirling dating from 1804 can be seen from Stirling Castle.
