You can walk up to the Monument, or wait for the shuttle to take you up. The walk up is steep, but has some nice places to stop and rest and is a nice walk through the woods. There are some small monuments along the way that have some historical significance. Be prepared to walk up a very narrow staircase to the top. LOTS OF STAIRS. The view from the top is worth it though. Remarkable!
The walk from the visitor centre to the monument takes about 15 minutes or so and is quite steep but there's a shuttle bus that will take you up to the monument if required. The monument itself has a rather narrow spiral staircase which does involve some close passing manoeuvres with other visitors. In the monument there's three rooms with informative exhibitions in them which also provide the opportunity for a rest before continuing upwards! The views from the top are excellent so for me it was well worth the climb.
Free parking and a nice walk up through the trees to the monument. Interesting items and room on the many climbs to the top. Great views. Also enjoyed the actors entertainment which seems to appear now and again.
Steep walk up, steep steps and a steep entry price! The monument is well worth a visit, especially to better understand Wallace and his place in Scottish history. I enjoyed it and the views are great. However, a tenner to enter is a rip-off for just 3 rooms - 4 if you include the viewing platform. Half an hour is probably enough for an all-encompassing visit. Bear in mind that you can board the Royal Yacht Britannia for £15 and you'll see 30 rooms, get a comprehensive commentary and need about 3 hours to take it all in! I suspect the hefty price tag helps to subsidise the free transport up the hill. Why not reduce the entry cost and charge separately for the bus trip?
Started our visit with tea and scones (amazing!) and we were so glad we did. The hike to the monument and then climbing to the top of the monument took quite a bit of energy. The history and the amazing views made all the effort worth it! Will definitely visit again.
