In 1314, King Edward II led a massive invasion of Scotland in an effort to crush the Scots. However, it was during this critical moment that Scotland’s greatest medieval king, Robert, famously known as “The Bruce,” emerged to defend his nation. The momentous clash between the two forces took place on the 23rd and 24th of June 1314 at Bannockburn, a small stream within view of Stirling Castle. This thunderous battle would ultimately determine the destiny of the Scottish nation.
