About This Book

For over 600 years, Robert the Bruce has had a unique place in Scottish history. Yet behind the legendary hero king is a complex, and in many ways, more fascinating picture. He was a man who not only led his nation to a famous victory over the English at Bannockburn, but who overcame great odds to win power for himself in Scotland and fulfil his family’s long-held ambition for political power. This book, illustrated with superb colour and black and white photographs, takes the reader on Bruce’s journey, from his birth in south-west Scotland to his kingship and triumph at Bannockburn. Here are the sites and settings associated with Robert the Bruce and those he fought. This is an essential travelling companion for a journey through Bruce’s kingdom and to learn more about the myth and the man.
