To be honest the day we were there it had scaffolding up and around it. It was pretty cold so we didnt do the climb up it. Its cool to go and visit though. The gift shop had lots of nice stuff that isn't expensive.

Hello, thank you so much for visiting. We are sorry for the scaffolding, which is there due to work being done on the statue of Sir William Wallace. Thank you for your kind review despite this.

Hello Tom, thank you so much for your very kind review despite being unable to climb to the top. I completely agree, I love seeing the monument from all around Stirling and seeing it look slightly different each time. Thanks again.

On top of a little hill you can find the monument, but you buy the tickets at the bottom of the hill. A short, but steep walk up and you can enter the endless and slightly claustrophobic staircase to get into the monument. On different...More

A must do! Make sure and climb to the top. The view is spectacular. There are educational stopovers every so often so you can rest. It is kind of daunting.

Hello, although dogs are welcome on the grounds surrounding the monument, I am afraid they are not permitted to the monument itself. I hope this helps.
