The route from Edinburgh to Falkland is a beautiful journey. We took the ETS-UK mascot ‘Harris’ on a day trip to the world famous Falkland Palace. On route we passed the Forth Road and Forth Rail Bridge and once we reached the other side in the Kingdom of Fife we passed the wonderful, Loch Leven where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner - the area is now an RSPB bird sanctuary.
Harris at Bannockburn
ETS-UK staff took Harris on a day trip to see a famous Scottish battle site. With Scotland celebrating the 2014 - Year of Homecoming. We thought it would be a good time to take Harris to Bannockburn, a place where 700 years ago, in 1314, Robert the Bruce (King of the Scots) routed a larger English army under the command of Edward II.
‘The Bruce’ was the king who in the end united the nation.
