While there certainly are a lot of steps, it is well worth the effort. It was raining a little when we climbed to the top, but even then the views were spectacular.

The view from here cannot be beaten although if you want to walk up here you need to be fit. If Wallace was up here you can see why he was able to plan the thrashing he gave the English forces on that fateful day

Another first for us to visit here. Negatives first - felt the admission was a bit dear for what is actually there. Usual moans about gift shop prices. In this health and safety age was a little surprised the top wasn't all fenced off. Didn't bother me but I could imagine those complaining. No it's not disabled friendly to go... More

As soon as you park, the walk up to the monument is great; my grand-children loved it. They also loved all the steps up and wondering around the halls and especially the view from the top. Despite there age, they were interested in the history and we will be taking them back as they grow.

If you are able to tackle the stairs, what an amazing view from above. Just need to be careful on the stairs. Loved it.

Beautiful landscape and the views are a must, but that is something it can be done for free. Climbing the stairs of the tower and visiting the rooms is nice, but far too expensive. One star less because of rude staff.

I am from Falkirk originally and now Perth and I have always been fascinated with Wallace and Scottish history. I visited today after 21 years of wanting to go and was pleased with my experience but not blown away. The weather was stunning and the walk up to the tower was fantastic. The views of the forth valley are just... More

We were late (40min before closing) but still had enough time to be driven from the car park to the monument (free shuttle service), climb to the top, take pictures from the stunning view and even see a bit of the exhibition. As said we haven't seen all the exhibition but for my taste it is not really appropriate for... More
