The statue has a great view of the border country. After just a short walk from the parking space you will find the statue overlooking what seems like all of Scotland. Also nice place to go alone to gather thoughts.

So glad we made the detour to see this amazing monument. It was spectacular there is a car park but you do have to walk a wee bit to get to the monument but it's well worth it

Well, this wasn't exactly as I had pictured it in my mind. It is somewhat surreal to find this in the country side, kind of hidden away in the bush...you will never see it from the road. It was a bit of a rainy walk...More

Lovely walk through the woods but surprised when we got there by the statue which was huge and strangely clad....still worth a visit though.

The best bit ,if it is a sunny day, is the woodland walk to the Statue.The statue itself is not a justification for a wet walk from the car.

A short walk to a statue of Wallis which when you get there is not looked after and very over grown, the lovely view that people mention is hard to see for the foliage, a shame and a bit pointless to visit.

It is free to see the Statue. You take a short walk through a wooded area which is pretty good under foot. Wheel chair users would manage this path. There is a small free car park.

The statue is located on a steep hill, overlooking a beautiful valley next to the River Tweed. It can be accessed from a small car park on the road out of Dryburgh, near St. Boswells - or by a fairly steep path out of Dryburgh...More

The area around the statue is now somewhat overgrown so the views are limited. The statue itself is impressive in its size and has been renovated. Made of red sandstone the statue was once painted white. A bit of a mystery with Wallace clad in...More

Yes. Dogs are allowed. The statue is in the middle of the countryside and can be reached from good paths from the River Tweed or a path from a nearby side road. Keep your dog on a lead when walking where there are sheep or... More
