We "saw" the Wallace monument from Stirling Castle. Our guide spoke about it and the history surrounding it at length - very interesting. If would have had more time we definitely would have visited it up close.

First time visit. Perfect Scottish spring day, snow, wind, rain & sunshine. All within 15 minutes. Walked for the visitor centre, uphill but not to strenuous. Bus was available. £10 entry fee I thought was a bit steep. Stated at the bottom of the monument and it was snowing, blowing a hoolie (windy) and the view was minimum. We got... More

If you are visiting Stirling you must make the short journey out to the Wallace monument to take in the views over the city from the high ground of the Abbey Craig. The path up to the viewpoint is very steep and challenging but perhaps it's better to wait for the small minibus which will whisk you to the top... More

Relatively steep climb from the car park below but worth it once you get to the top. Stunning views over the countryside. We climbed the 3 chambers to the top which was very interesting. The architecture at the top of the building is amazing and the views are even more stunning. Unfortunately it was blowing a gale and freezing cold...even... More

The monument stands atop of a hill, which you can either walk up or take a short minibus ride up. The monument looks over Stirling, and has 242 steps to get to the top. Does it made you tired? Yep. Do you feel you're forever spiralling upwards between the 3 floors? Yep. Is it worth it on top? YES. The... More

Did not go into the monument itself, just walked up the hill. Great views from the top over the city and the castle.

The movie Braveheart has always been one of my favorites so I felt I must learn the real history around William Wallace. I arrived later so I walked up to the monument, which wasn't difficult but may be for someone who is old. If you arrive earlier than I did (about 30 min before closing) then there is a shuttle...
