Save Bannockburn sign now

Gillies Hill was used as a shelter by Robert the Bruce and his troops before the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 and it played a significant role in the Scottish victory there. It has traditionally been the setting for the turning point of this pivotal battle in the Scottish Wars of Independence, and is a very important part of Scottish history. But now Gillies Hill may very well be destroyed, and its stone quarried in order to build and repair roads. Although work has been done here before over the last century and a half, it has been on a smaller scale, and extensive quarrying, like the quarrying that is set to begin this summer, may very well destroy this important landmark. We, the undersigned, believe that Gillies Hill, as a significant historical landmark, should not be destroyed for stone when other sources for stone are readily available, regardless of any prior agreements. Additionally, since Gillies Hill is not listed on any registry as a historical landmark, we believe that it should be listed as one, so that its existence may never be threatened again.
