The National Trust for Scotland is hosting Bannockburn’s first ever Bark in the Park event for four-legged visitors on Sunday, June 12.

This fun dog show will have a wide range of categories from Best Junior Handler to Waggiest Tail. Entry costs £1 per category and all funds raised will support the trust work at the Battle of Bannockburn site.

Sponsored by Bruceview Vets of Bannockburn and Apex Vets of Denny, and supported by Stirling Council, the event will have competitions for dogs of all shapes and sizes and a variety of canine-themed stalls from which to shop and learn.

Event organiser Rosie Milne said: “Every day we see lots of dogs stretching their legs at Bannockburn, so we’ve decided to host a special event to celebrate our canine visitors. The focus is very much on fun for man’s best friend, and their two-legged companions.”

The event will run from 12pm-4pm and throughout the afternoon The Battle of Bannockburn café will be open with delicious cakes and refreshments available.

The Battle of Bannockburn is a multi-award-winning visitor centre, funded by the Scottish Government and the Heritage Lottery Fund. With cutting edge 3D technology, this new Battle of Bannockburn experience puts visitors at the heart of the action in a fully immersive game.

The landscape and parkland allow visitors to appreciate the site believed to be Bruce’s campsite before the battle, and its restored commemorative monuments including the iconic statue of Robert the Bruce. You can book your Battle of Bannockburn experience now online at
