OK, so most people come to the Wallace Monument to go inside and climb the stairs up, but to be perfectly honest, the view from the base of the monument is already quite marvellous. My little gem for other fitness enthusiasts is to come in your running gear because this site is perfect for trail running. There are three hiking... More

This magnificent monument sits on top of a steep hill so it can been seen from anywhere in Stirling. It is a good 10 minute walk to the top of the hill, and then almost 246 steps to the top of monument. Thank goodness the architects created rest stops along the way within the tower with very interesting artifacts from... More

We went with my parents and our two boys (1 and 4). My four year old did great climbing the stairs until we got up to the second level and then he was scared of the wind whipping through the windows on the staircase (it was a fairly windy day...not the norm). The views at the top are stunning...definitely worth... More

Took the train from Edinburgh for a day trip to Stirling. After visiting the castle, we walked to the the monument (about 45 min walk). It was worth the walk and the views of the valley plus all the exercise of walking there and walking up the hill to the monument and the steps to get up ( worked off... More

The monument to William Wallace of Braveheart fame is visible all over this low county landscape. It is sturdy and strong as was the man so commemorated we are told. He led a motley band of Scots in victory over the professional English army of Edward I and suffered accordingly by the hands of the English when betrayed and captured.... More

The Wallace Monument can be seen seen from far. However, it is overpriced and disappointing historic information. The view is impressive, though.

We followed the signs to the Wallace monument and from the car park looked up, up, up to the monument still high above us. We chose to walk the path to the top and it was very enjoyable. There is a shuttle that will run you to the top, I believe for free. Once at the top of the hill,... More
