Very enjoyable walk around the site. Great views of Stirling from the top. The talk given by one of William Wallace's foot soldiers was very informative and very interesting. He was present at the Battle of Stirling Bridge.......he told us so!

I cannot see what the fuss is all about I am half Scottish so I get the history and the view is great but there are plenty of places to get a view close like castle Campbell much older and much cheaper one narrow staircase up and down put my wife off as people were not disciplined on the stairs...

Great attraction . . . . although I didn't go up to the top of the monument. Travelled with my two grandchildren who had great delight in my fear of heights. All the staff were very pleasant and guided us to the most economic way of paying for the attraction. There was a free shuttle bus to and from the... More

First things first. If you have small children, elderly companions or you're just plain out of shape - take the free bus up to the monument. Maybe add 'if you have whinging teens' to that list as well, because it is a tough slog up a steep, rocky, muddy trail to get to the monument if you don't take the... More

We walked to the top of the monument...246 steps by a spiral staircase. There are several stops on the way up housing exhibits and showcasing William Wallace.

Great early evening walk. Would have been 'excellent' if I had had more time. Love the bold statement that the Monument makes. Nothing shy about this tribute to a local hero. Need to be reasonably fit or go earlier and catch the mini bus. Fantastic views - worth the effort.

Overlooks where the Battle of Stirling Bridge occurred. The climb isn't so bad, don't be discouraged by the # of steps, the view of Stirling, Stirling Castle, and the battle site is amazing...and learning a some Scottish History is always good too!!! The monument is beautiful in itself. Hope for a clear day, it can be seen!!!

The National Wallace Monument became a highlight of our entire trip, as a gentleman in character (as one of William Wallace's followers) spoke enthusiastically to the small crowd. We learned a great deal more about Scottish history and were fascinated the entire time. Be sure to check the schedule of days and times when this special presentation is available. It... More

We visited the Wallace monument & were delighted to have the access to a free bus service to both the top & bottom of the monument! It did look like a lovely walk but very steep!!! It was great to climb the narrow staircase to each level to learn about William Wallace & what life was like in these times.... More
