The National Wallace Monument, Stirling Reviews - Write a Review
I have been going to the monument since I was Two years old. The differences from then to now are great. There has been a great deal of work on the paths up to the monument over the past few months and a number of nice additional displays. To keep your interest on the way up to the monument. It is a relatively steep climb but a minibus is available if required. Nice views across to Stirling castle and the Forth valley. Well worth a visit.
Amazing place full of history and a must visit for any visitors to Scotland. The path up is in good condition although fairly steep fairly steep should be no problem for anyone who's reasonably fit. There's also a regular minibus service for anyone less able. If possible take a walk up the path as the wood carvings along the way are brilliant. When at the top take the path on the other side of the monument for stunning views of the River Forth and Stirling Castle.
I've decided after reading the two negative reviews to have my own say! It's absolutely beautiful, the area, the monument, the wood carvings, the stories, the cafe, you can go out to the monument for free, but if you wish to climb 200+ stairs and see re-enactments you'll pay approx £10. Don't complain when you go in and have to climb stairs! Yes it was built 400+ years ago, so people were slimmer, so if your larger than n life your gonna get annoyed trying to squeeze past others coming down the super winding stairs! If you don't like heights, don't go up! This is by no means a money making opportunity, it's history loving restored and maintained for your enjoyment.
The memorial building is very well done. A lounge, a gift shop, terrific staff, a great view of the battlefields and 226 narrow steps to climb to the top of the building. Each floor has descriptions, photos and artifacts. It is emotional because of how he died. It is hard to find any leaders now that have the ethics and honor William Wallace had. Bravo! This is a must see in Scotland.
Clearly signposted. Has toilets and gift shop at base of mound. You can walk up to the Wallace Monument or take the free mini bus ride there and back. Stunning views of Stirling Castle and district. There is a charge to climb the 246 steps of the monument, the gift shop at the actual monument has free entry. The displays are amazing and educational.
