  • About

In 1314

The Dryfield was the better-drained and cultivated area west of the Carse, lying on higher ground. It may have been where some of the fighting on 24 June took place.  

The Scots would certainly have marched across this area to take the English army by surprise. Having camped on the lower ground of the Carse, the English army were not suspecting that the Scots would take the initiative and trap them in this narrow, awkward location.


Much of the Dryfield is now largely covered by housing and Bannockburn High School.
