New Sofas in the Sitting Room
We have replaced all the sofas in the sitting room with lovely new ones form Harveys. Fabrics to match the new curtains as well !
The Shower in the Main Bathroom
We have installed a new shower in the main bathroom. This replaces the one which came off the hot and cold taps, and should be much more efficient. No more problems with the shower running hot and cold as others use the kitchen or private shower room ! (hopefully).
The Battle of Bannockburn
An incredible new experience that changes how you learn about Scottish history – a completely new building and visitor centre run by The National Trust for Scotland.
In June 1314 the history of Scotland as a nation was about to change forever. So that’s 700 years ago !
It was at the Battle of Bannockburn that Robert Bruce, King of Scots, would face down the English army led by Edward II.
Edward, keen to retain the stronghold of Stirling Castle, had led a huge army through Scotland to lift the Scots’ siege of his garrison at the Castle.
Achieving this was vital to Edward’s hopes of re-establishing his weakening grip on the country, but he was stopped short by the army of Robert Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn.
The Battle of Bannockburn visitor centre had welcomed 65,000 visitors in its first year of operation.
