2014 will mark the 700th anniversary of Robert the Bruce’s victory over the English (24th June 1314). There are big plans across Scotland to mark this date. Bannockburn is near Stirling and the local council are planning a “summer of celebration”, including Highland games and clan gatherings.
The Scottish government has also designated 2014 as Scotland’s second year of homecoming. 2014 will also see Glasgow host the Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. 2014 will be a big year for Scotland and fans of Scotland.
