VisitScotland has released details of the Bannockburn Live event and the fabulous musical and literary lineup for Saturday and Sunday.
We knew that a celebration of the battle of Bannockburn 700 years on had potential to be great. We are happy to report, in our opinion, Scotland has captured that potential and has put on offer a truly once in a lifetime event on Saturday June 28th and Sunday June 29th.
For instance, you can:
- Celebrate with Julie Fowlis and Dougie MacLean and an incredible host of other musical performers.
- Chat with Alistair Moffat about his new work on Bruce and Bannockburn at Storyville.
- Witness a wicked mobile schiltron work its Scottish magic against King Edward II’s army.
- Eat and drink the best of what Scotland has to offer, ala 14th century style in the Medieval Village.
As a Scottish American you will have a home in the Clan Village along with kinsfolk from all over the globe.
More to come regarding clan and family events on Monday, June 30th, including exclusive free full access to the Bannockburn visitors’ center for clans who participated on Saturday and Sunday. In the meanwhile, feast your eyes on THESE:
