A visit to the Wallace Monument is a must do on ant trip to Stirling. He was and is a Scottish hero and the monument itself is well worth the visit to admire and reflect on the great man who gave the Scottish folk hope and the spirit to stand against the cruel English repression. This is not a history... More

What a great visit. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Loved all the displays and even the Scottish weather couldn't spoil the view from the top ....but it certainly tried! Well worth a visit.

An impressive monuments which is seen for miles around. There is a bus to get up to the monument, it is steep walk. The monument has several landings and there are interesting historical information on each. There is hologram telling the history and Wallace's end.

Its a good hike, and LOTS of steps up the monument tower. But the view is...incredible. Indescribably beautiful view from the top. Also each level has interesting displays and information. Thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely return!

Thoroughly recommended. Informative, we'll run, nice shop and cafe. It's a very steep walk from the car park to the Monument. Take the shuttle bus that runs every 10 minutes if you are unsure. The steps to the top are steep and narrow. Well worth it with stops on each floor and that amazing view at the top. A history... More

I love Scottish history and this monument is a great memorial to William Wallace. Located just outside Stirling is fantastic. The monument is a hard climb but to me worth it to look over Stirling. Lots to do in the area.

Nestled atop a steep hill outside Stirling with a prominent view of the town, river, nearby mountains and countryside, the Wallace monument is worth its entrance fee and winding trek to its summit for the majestic vistas alone. For the less brave hearted a regular shuttle bus transports you from the ticket office below. We were lucky that the day... More
