For Robert the Bruce, there's King's Swift Rider if you haven't read it already, which I think Braveheart may have been based on. Nigel Tranter has a series of books based on Robert the Bruce.
For Scotland in general, there's Mary Queen of Scotland & the Isles by Margaret George - I've had this one on my TBR list for awhile, and loved the other George books I've read. Her writing style makes you feel like you are right there in the period.
The Diana Gabaldon Outlander books are based in Scotland - another that I've got in TBR that I haven't gotten to, but everyone who reads seems to love!
Another that looks good is The Observations by Jane Harris.
I thought Nigel Tranter's "Bruce" series was very well done. The 3 books are:
Another one, "The Great Scot" by Duncan A. Bruce. This one is actually written by a direct descendant of the brother of Robert the Bruce. He's written a couple of non-fiction books about Scotland too, I think.
