My boyfriend and I visited here to do the interactive game. We arrived early and walked the grounds which was lovely and interacted with the staff who were enthusiastic and friendly and spoke to everyone. I loved all the quotes on the monuments. The game was fantastic it was Scotland v England in the same scenario as the actual battle.... More

Me and my partner visited the attraction on the 17th of June went for both the battle experience and the battle game. Firstly, I would like to point out how professional and friendly the staff where. From the staff at the desk (who were incredibly friendly and informative) to the "guides" who took us through the actual experience. All of... More

As we got nearer to Bannockburn and then pulled into the car park, I became more and more excited. We were about to walk where Robert the Bruce planted his colours after defeating the British and freeing Scotland. This was to me a very sobering and humbling experience. The Bruce monument is so powerful! We walked along the paths and... More

This is an amazing visitor centre for everyone but especially families with teens and young children. Although its only worth going if you do the battle of bannockburn experience as this is defiantly the best bit.

The whole experience was excellent. At first we found it a little expensive but after attending the presentation we were totally blown away. I have never experienced anything like the 3D effects, they were amazing. Will not spoil it for others by saying too much, but suffice it to say, it totally involves you in the action.

A very good improvement to what it was. The visitor centre and whole area is well set out and gives the battle of bannockburn site some realism

Thank you for your delightful review. The centre and memorial park have improved from the former building which was looking tired. More

I would like to complain about the attitude of Robert at your reception desk who was very rude to me yesterday and put down the telephone on me when I asked to be transferred to Linda Robertson. I think this is very rude and unprofessional

A great day out for kids. First go see where the battle of Bannockburn took place. Then you get a chance to go inside and see the virtual characters who fought in the battle with 3D video footage of arrows flying by your head as the battles take place. If you opt for the game you go into a room... More
