Also you can take postcard style photos of Stirling Castle on top of the monument from The Crown Spire The gift shop has nice souvenirs and the monument's 246 narrow steps complete the... More

Interesting site. Exhibits are a little limited but fun and informative. View form the top is fantastic, even on a cloudy day.

This is a great place to visit, especailly when the skies are clear and you get to the top of the tower. Spectacular. It is a walk to the tower from the visitor centre so I caught the bus up but walked down after. The climb in the spiral stairacse is not easy but at each level there is something... More

It depends on what you are looking for as to whether you will enjoy this or not. There is a mini bus to take you up to the monument if you don't want to walk and if you like history this is a very interesting place.

We went during good weather and visibility was fab. There was also actors on when we went acting out a conversation between a scot and an English man which was good too. Definitely worth a visit.

Excellent place to know about the history of William Wallace, lovely landscapes around and around, so, what are you waiting for?, just a few km away from Stirling train station, you will also enjoy the remarkable city of Stirling with beautiful houses and kind people.

U can either hike up or take the shuttle to the monument from the visitors centre. As it was a rainy day, we took the shuttle bus. The spiral stairs are very narrow and claustrophobic and being a person with heigh issues, I stopped at the second level. My husband went up all the way with my son and then... More
