IT WILL capture the heat of battle without the gore. Visitors to the new Bannockburn centre will get the chance to unleash their inner bloodthirsty warrior on an interactive 3D battlefield, complete with rampaging soldiers and arrows flying overhead.
Scotland on Sunday has been given an exclusive preview of plans for the £9 million visitor centre that will be the focal point of celebrations to mark the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn during the 2014 Year of Homecoming.
Hollywood-style computer-generated imagery will allow visitors to experience what it would have felt like during the battle. They will be invited to learn sword-wielding moves before being let loose to deploy their own warrior tactics in a battlefield game.
