We got here right before closing hour and we were glad we made it. It was very windy with rain so we couldn't go to the crown but it was still worth it. We are a big fan of Scottish history and the Battle of Bannockburn. You get to see William Wallace's sword which was one of the main reasons... More

After so many visits to Scotland (9 actually 6 times) we managed to plan a visit to this astonishing monument which shows both history and skill in building such a monument. I really like to admire how our ancestors managed to build such things considering the lack of machinery that we have today.

If you like the outdoors and history then this is a stop for you. The Wallace Monument is on a hill with spectacular views. You can take the bus or walk up. There are lots of beautiful trials and if you fancy a nice walk, it's free! You only have to pay if you wish to enter the monument. There... More

This historic monument allows great views of the surrounding area, including Stirling Castle. There is ample parking and a minibus service to take you to the base of the monument. After that there is a winding stair to the top, reminiscent of historic castles, steep and narrow. Great view from the top though makes it worth while. There is also... More

The Wallace Monument is perch high on a hill a couple of miles from Stirling. When you arrive in the parking lot, go inside the visitors center to get your tickets to hike up the 260+ stairs to the top of the monument. From the visitors center you can either hike up to the top of the hill or take... More

As I used to work next door, I used to enjoy the walk up to the Monument, but it took me ages to get around to actually going up the tower, Very glad I did - the views are beautiful! Not so keen on the wee visitor centre - it's a bit tacky - so ignore it unless you need... More

Traveled to Stirling by tain from Edinburgh 45mins then by bus 62 to the monument and a short walk up a small hill to the ticket counter. Definitely worth the $$$ to climb the 264 steps over the 3 levels to see the exhibits and of course the sword. Did not travel for 32hrs on 4 flights to stad and... More

The monument is amazing. The design of the monument itself is a treat for the eyes. There are three exhibition rooms while climbing up there. Most amazing is the sword of sir William Wallace.Must see.

Amazing monument, even from ground level. Imagine the brilliant views up top, should you choose to climb all those stairs! It's worth a stop, even if it's just to take a picture and sort out the movie Braveheart with actual history.
