Having some time to kill between trains I wandered up here to admire this statue of such a great historic figure. It was larger than expected. The bonus of coming here was that I discovered a number of restaurants and bars that I will keep...More

The Wallace monument takes Pride of Place opposite His Majesties Theatre on Rosemount Viaduct in Aberdeen. Lots of information on the panels which is interesting. Nice backdrop of the three building in granite facades, known locally as Education, Salvation and Damnation. Well worth a visit...More

... a statue of William Wallace is more unusual. Of course, we actually know what Burns looked like, whereas this statue of Wallace makes no pretence of accuracy in that regard. Seeing it in 2017, it would be difficult to avoid making comparisons to the...More

This massive statue celebrates the hero of the movie 'Braveheart'; although it pre-dates that historically-inaccurate Mel Gibson block buster by many decades. Wallace is one of the most important historical Scottish figures, who battled English rule over the country centuries ago. It is just across...More

The statue doesn't look like Mel Gibson at all. Everybody knows that Braveheart did not have a beard and was painted blue and white in his face. This looks more like some person from 1200-something. Or perhaps 1300-something. It's definately worth seing though. There's a...More

It's a pretty statue set in the part of Aberdeen you should visit. It serves as a good base for seeing the theatre, library and St Mark's church as well as the gardens and Art Gallery. Much of the things around here are being refurbished...More

This statue sits opposite HMT in the centre of Aberdeen. It has the legendary piece about fighting for freedom on the bottom, It is impressive but you will probably only get a photo with it and move on.

It's an impressive statue but wouldn't really call it a thing to do in Aberdeen. Will probably stand and look at it for less than a minute
