Should you happen to be in the centre of Aberdeen(Granite Ciiy) a moment to study this monument/statue is a must. Why William Wallace? You guess is as good as mine.

I really enjoyed the two levels of this memorial that I made it to---but the tiny, curvy, winding access up the tower is not for the faint of heart. The Hall of Heroes was great, though. It is not every day you get to see...More

A very good reminder that freedom is costly and requires continual commitment. Something we should remember; especially given the standing of the world today.
