Havent been to the Wallace Monument since I was at primary school. At nearly £10 a head its a bit expensive for what you get. At the time of buying our tickets the driver of the shuttle bus was 'off site' so we opted to walk up the hill rather than wait. The walk is up a fairly steep hill,... More

Loved this & have wanted to visit for a few years so well worth the wait , it's a long walk but there's a mini bus takes you if your disabled or elderly , only problem Is the stairs as its only one way so anyone coming back held up those going up ,but the views are superb .

The monument is stunning from the bottom of the hill. Shuttle van service was excellent. Lots of stairs but well worth the views. We thoroughly enjoyed this Scottish treasure.

Fantastic experience and well worth a visit. You learn so much and if you can make it to the top of the monument, the views are incredible. Number of trails to walk too or enjoy a picnic around the grounds. The gift shop and cafe are worth checking out too. All very friendly staff.

Completely worth the stop if you are visiting Stirling Castle! It's a pretty strenuous hike up the monument - if you're not up for that -take the bus. It's about 250 stairs to the top of the monument - very narrow, winding stairs. I had to stop once or twice coming down because I got a bit dizzy. Great historic... More

Impressive structure. It is at the top of a fairly steep hill, so walking up to it can be a workout. There are shuttle busses, but the walk is more interesting. Learn a lot about William Wallace, the Scottish hero immortalized in Braveheart. Climbing to the top of the monument via a narrow, winding staircase can be scary, but well... More

It is a striking landmark that can be seen from many places in Stirling – we saw from the Stirling Castle, tiny though. We didn’t climb to the top as my mum was feeling tired. But if you want to take a good picture of the whole monument you probably need to go to some public carpark/roadside further away to... More

The view at the top is amazing. We loved the steep walk up the spiral staircase, with a few stops at floors showing historical info and technical info about the monument. I didn't realize it was built over 100 years ago. Wish the price wasn't so high though. It's awfully pricey for such a steep walk up to the top.

This was a great monument to visit. Although a bit of a climb to top, it was worth every step! Views from top incredible. Would highly recommended a visit.

This was my second trip to Stirling, but my first time at the Wallace monument, and I'm glad we went by! The weather left something to be desired, but to be expected in Scotland in April. Definitely some interesting information and a great view from the top of the monument.
