NATIONAL WALLACE MONUMENT

The National Wallace Monument is a large Victorian tower, in baronial/medieval style, built high on a prominent hill, to commemorate the Scottish patriot Sir William Wallace (c1270 - 1305), who led resistance against the English during the Scottish Wars of Independence before being betrayed, captured and taken to London, where he was executed. The Monument opened in 1869 and includes 3 exhibition chambers telling the story of Wallace, his victory at nearby Stirling Bridge in 1297, and the building of the monument. There are 246 steps to the top of the monument, from which there are stunning views of Stirling, the castle and surrounding countryside.
