Attraction in Stirling
Over 700 years ago...
...¦tyranny and terror were the tools being used by England to rule Scotland. Occupied and oppressed, the Scottish nation sought a hero to challenge the cruelty of King Edward I. Someone to take the campaign for freedom into battle, and on to victory.
When the two countries faced each other at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297, Scotland was led to victory by a figure destined to become a national hero - William Wallace.
All the drama of his campaign for freedom is captured at The National Wallace Monument - proudly standing on the Abbey Craig, overlooking the city of Stirling. Open all year, it is packed with fascinating exhibits and displays - so come and visit one of Scotland's most magnificent sights, and meet a national hero.
