National Wallace Monument

Stirling’s famous landmark commemorates the life and legacy of Sir William Wallace. Situated on the Abbey Craig outside the historic city of Stirling, the Monument overlooks the scene of Wallace’s greatest victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. 

The three exhibition galleries inside the Monument tell the story of Wallace, and of how he has been recognised through the generations – The Hall of Arms shows how William Wallace rose from obscurity to become the leader of the Scots – and is home to the legendary Wallace Sword. The Hall of Heroes celebrates famous Scots inspired by the country’s first national hero. The Royal Chamber displays the facts and figures behind the Battle of Stirling Bridge – with an interactive viewfinder and wall of weapons. When you reach The Crown at the top of The Monument the view will take your breath away. It’s one of the finest sights Scotland has to offer, from Ben Lomond and the Trossachs in the west, and through the Forth Valley past the city of Stirling and the Ochil Hills, to the Pentland Hills in the east.
