Come with us on an adventure back in time

FROM THE LONG AND TREACHEROUS PATH THAT LED TO THE FIELDS OF BANNOCKBURN OVER SEVEN CENTURIES AGO, TO THE ROLLING COUNTRYSIDE OF AYRSHIRE AND THE DREAMS OF A YOUNG PLOUGHBOY. FROM THE DRAMA, PASSION AND SACRIFICE FOR KING AND COUNTRY TO A DIFFERENT KIND OF LOVE AND PASSION FROM ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST CREATIVE MINDS.

THESE ARE THE ROADS YOU WILL TRAVEL AS YOU MOVE THESE MAJESTIC players ACROSS THE equally majestic CHESSBOARDS.
OUR PIECES

Every chess piece is different: each one, the product of collaboration between creator, artist, model-maker and historian.

Only in those rarest of moments will you find a chess set with all 32 pieces different. And you may never see a chess set with pieces as exquisitely designed and crafted in solid pewter.

Each piece tells its own tale in one of two adventures: from loss to triumph on the field of battle; and from love to despair (and back again) – in the mind and heart of one man.
Package includes presentation box, information booklet, audio CD and certificate of authentication
Incredible attention to detail
Solid pewter playing squares

Join a Worldwide Club

Whether it’s to play, as a gift or simply to admire, these two luxury limited edition Chess Sets will grace any home, as a focus for today and an heirloom for future generations.

The first Bannockburn Chess Set was sold in 1996 to Walt Disneyworld, for the British Pavilion in the Epcot Centre, Florida. Since then we have sent Bruce, Edward and their armies off to every continent - except Antarctica! Battle of Bannockburn Chess sets are gracing homes in USA, Canada, Australia, Africa, China, Japan, Singapore, Germany, Denmark, England, Wales and Ireland – and, of course, Scotland.

The much more recent Robert Burns Chess Set is still a baby in comparison, but is already setting the pace with sales to the USA, Canada, Australia, Estonia and, of course, Scotland.

AND REMEMBER, IT'S FREE SHIPPING, DOOR-TO-DOOR, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!

What our customers think about our chess sets

I still have my Bannockburn Set on display in my hallway. I have owned this for many years now there is not a day that goes past that I consider myself grateful to have acquired such a magnificent set. I only have positive comments; the quality is superb, the thought put into the individual pieces is painstaking and the board itself is just beautiful. I would highly recommend to anyone that loves Scottish history.

Hello John. We would like to say a big thank you for the Bannockburn Chess set. It was delivered to our door when you said it would be and is of the finest quality and detail. We still use it every week and is a pleasure to do so. We would say to anyone thinking of buying one to go ahead and do it. Worth every Euro.

Robert Burns is a big hero in our family. When we came across this chess set 4 years ago we just had to have it. The pieces are all different and each have their own story to tell, they speak to us as though direct from the great Bard’s mouth itself. A big talking point at dinner parties and family gatherings and we still play it every month too. What a marvellous product John and his team have produced.

A big hello from Cananda! We are more than happy to provide a review of our Bannockburn Chess set. It is huge and so well made. It’s so big I had to build a plinth for it in our living room where it now lives and wows all our friends and family. We don’t use it that frequently right now (sorry) but it just looks so darn amazing it doesn’t matter. Our home is all the better for its presence. A big thanks!

Don't just take our word for it...

‘Bannockburn was more than a great battle and victory; it was a triumph against the odds for the freedom of man and nation’

So much so that the word has become a decisive term to describe a turning-point in any dire situation. And Robert the Bruce, King of Scots, whose all but personal triumph it was, enshrined his name in the history of Scotland, England and the lands beyond. When even the most determined and courageous would have given up on the struggle long before, Bruce fought on. His victory, against overwhelming odds, was one of the greatest achievements in military history and became part of the folklore of Scotland's perpetual struggle for self-direction.

‘Robert Burns was born in a thunderstorm and lived his brief life in flashes of lightning’

From his mother he inherited his gypsy good looks, charm, and an instinct for music, especially in song. From his father came his stubborn integrity and a passion for words. To him, Robert owed his mind. We remember RobertBurns as the singer of the parish who became the bard of the nation and a poet for the world. He told of ordinary things in an extraordinary way that still gives us new insights into who and what we are. This remarkable chess set reflects the faces and places of reality and fantasy that wove their way into his life. The poetry is embedded in the chessboard - and in the imagination of those who move the pieces.

'It is certainly rare that chess sets of this importance and stature become available'

"With an amazing eye for detail John Morgan has created two magnificent chess sets. Painstakingly produced from hand cast pewter, the Robert Burns and Battle of Bannockburn chess sets would grace the homes of any serious chess player or collector with a keen interest in Scottish history and literature. It is certainly rare that chess sets of this importance and stature become available and, in my view, both make a wonderful contribution to the long history of chess which dates back to c600 AD.”
