  • A great place to visit and learn about a tragic history! There’s a gift shop where you can take home some cool souvenirs. The stairs leading to the top of the monument are steep, winding and very narrow. If you’re scared of heights or claustrophobic, you may choose to not go all the way up. If you do make the climb, you’ll be rewarded with a great view. Take time to read all the info about Wallace on the different floors. There’s a bus you can take to the monument from the gift shop or you can walk. There’s a great viewpoint from where the bus drops you off. I’d definitely go back!

  • What an excellent place to visit.. Informative, friendly guides, a gift shop with tons of Wallace Memorabilia.. and best still, a little climb of a mere 246 steps, with views to take your breath away, looking over Stirling.. The three exhibition galleries within the Monument, and the Crown at the top of the building, are accessed via a spiral staircase, with a total of 246 steps. Visitors unable to use the staircase can use the facilities in the Keeper's Lodge, at the entrance level. Completed in 1869 after eight year's construction, the 220 feet high Wallace Monument sits prominently on the Abbey Craig two miles north of the city of Stirling itself. Our family enjoyed spending 2 hours taking in the views and also watching the re-enactment taking place outside the monument.. Enjoy..!!

  • They didn't let us know before hand that a single entry covers a whole year, or we would have gone up much sooner. Between 10-11 on weekdays they do half price entry. My 3 year old son loved it, but he did find the staircase quite narrow. There are new carvings on the footpath leading from the cafe to the top, which my son loves. The day we went to the top of the tower the snow was so heavy the tower had to be closed mid visit, so the staff amended our tickets to allow for a re attendance.

  • Great to go to via tourist shop n cafe. Only pay for purchases made or entry to the monument to reach the top. a free mini bus to the monument is available about every 20 minutes . There's is a gift shop on the ground floor no lift. so upper floors not accessible for disabled people. Lovely views and history rooms about some of the best of William wallace and others well worth the visit.

  • Lots of stairs but absolutely worth climbing up. Stunning view! The stairs up is a bit narrow, but not a big problem unless you meet someone on your way down which can be an intimate experience. Good if you want an excuse to join the 'me too' craze. If you time things a bit, you can easily reach one of the different rooms on your way up/down to avoid running into to many people. The walkways from/to the monument are great even if you're not that fit. Absolutely worth the trip. Would go again another year!
