On This Day

24 June 1314: An English army under King Edward II sent to relieve Stirling Castle is defeated by Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn. Edward II only narrowly escapes with his life. It is the most notable single military victory in Scottish history.

24 June 1488: The coronation at the age of 15 of King James IV, arguably the first effective monarch of the House of Stewart.

25 June 592: St Moluag dies in Rosemarkie.
