Bannockburn Centre wins funding battle
July 25 2011
It means that Historic Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland, the projects backers, now have up to two years to submit a full proposal.
Employing the latest technology to bring the battleground to life the centre is due to be completed by 2014, the 700th anniversary of the clash.
Colin McLean, head of the Heritage Lottery Fund in Scotland, said: "To this day, the Battle of Bannockburn inspires artists, writers and political thinkers worldwide and is intrinsically linked to Scotland's national identity.
"We are delighted to give our initial support to a project which will take the visitor experience to a new level, commensurate with the historical significance of this heritage site."
