Nice place where the statue is. Beautiful neighbourhood, theatre, beautiful park and a nice view of the city. The statue is well conserved, with nice information signs around and the history is so expressive and well known that worths seeing it again.

Every Aberdonian passes this statue regularly, but how many stop to look at it? It is on Rosemount Viaduct directly across from the three buildings known locally as Education, Salvation and Damnation (the Central Library, St Mark's Church and His Majesty's Theatre). It is very impressive and makes a nice change from the rather staid ones of Queen Victoria and... More

I see William Wallace's statue often, but never tire of seeing him. I find William an impressive statue, who manages to look dignified on his plinth. Love him, but I am a Scot.

We took a 20 min walk from satrosphere to the statue and it was definitely worth it...it may just be a statue but it presented some real family laughter posing for photos in the same pose as Wallace...then afternoon tea immediately opposite at his majesty's theatre cafe (excellent prices and half those of satrosphere!)...great memories created from a simple statue!

Every year thee is a celebration beside the statue where they do readings and lay wreaths.

Is big, bold and beautiful. Situated opposite His Majesty's theatre and not far from Union Terrace, even from Union Street, the statue is visable from the bridge. It is a fitting tribute to a Scots national hero and viewing is free as it is on the road side.

The statue cannot be missed as one makes their way down the Rosemount Viaduct toward the Central Library. It is truly larger than life, just as the man, William Wallace, was himself. At the base of the sculpture a brief history of this Scottish hero is given. A remarkable landmark and a fitting tribute to one of Scotland's finest fighting... More
