The monument & Robert Bruce statue
A totally unique view looking north.
The statue of Robert Bruce, King of Scots in the foreground with
Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument over at Causewayhead in the
top left and right corners respectively.
The statue alongside the circular monument built round the cairn which
marks the spot where Robert Bruce is said to have raised his standard
for the Battle of Bannockburn.
This image was taken from over the playing field just south of the monument
so it gives not only a unique view but is from a relatively lower level than
normally shown on this website. It was taken looking north.
The monument alone from the south.
Carved round the oak ring of the Rotunda is this Kathleen Jamie poem.
Interestingly, the author took well over 700 words to explain the
“simplicity” of her 55 word poem.
