Looking for places to visit in Stirling?
You'll find the Monument on pages 30&31
Few other areas show more clearly both sides of Scotland - the busy towns of the Lowlands contrast with the forested hills and lochs of the Highlands. Small wonder that it was here that the first tourists came in the Romantic Age two centuries ago.

This year Poppy Scotland and Double Take Productions were able project a giant image of a poppy on to the Monument for Rememberance Day.

The National Wallace Monument would like to say thank you all of our visitors who purchased a poppy at the National Wallace Monument, and to Poppy Scotland and Double Take Projections for making it possible for the Monument to wear its own poppy this year as a sign of remembrance.

With the increasing use of Drones, Stirling District Tourism would like to remind Drone users of the relevant legislation.

The users of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones) are required to comply with The Air Navigation Order 2009 (SI 2009 No. 3015), and this is not possible on The Abbey Craig due to the specific safety requirements of the site.

Permission must be obtained from The Civil Aviation Authority and from the site management team to use a drone in this location.

The National Wallace Monument is managed and operated by Stirling District Tourism Ltd., who are working with Police Scotland to ensure the safety of all visitors to The Abbey Craig and to the Monument, and to ensure that drones are operated in compliance with regulations.

Worth a visit! Impress to see from the outside and you get a nice walk on the way up. There are quite a few stairs in a narrow spiral staircase and when there are lots of tourists it can feel hot and muggy. There's not tons to see on the 4 levels but the top is worth a look for its spectacular view of Stirling and the River Forth. If you happen to catch the Scotsman dressed in traditional wear, he'll bring you back in time with his story of clans and battles!

Situated across the river Forth from Stirling Castle it offers great views of Stirling and the Forth valley. The spiral stairs inside the monument are not for the timid, they are narrow and on a busy day people are constantly going up and down them. There are rooms at each level leading up to the top of the monument providing somewhere to take a break from the climb and swat up on some history. Don't forget to take a walk around the volcanic plug it is built on either, it has lovely wooded walks and depending on the time of year wild flowers and various wildlife to spot.

A free minibus takes you to the top of a magnificent mound to the impressive erection to celebrate William Wallace. Amazing views across Scotland on a clear day, with maps telling you what you can see. You can pay to go up the tower, or just go inside for the gift shop. Lots of walking routes to the top, great for a small hike.

Wonderful view from base/visitor centre and if you get bus or walk the scenery is lovely. At the top the view of Stirling is beautiful and if willing to pay for tickets and hike 246 steps you will be rewarded even more with the beauty you see around you.

Very nice cool bit of history. It' only costs money if you want to go to the top, which is worth it. Great views in every direction. Nice hike to get to the monument. Cafe with food at front entrance.

They don't let kids under 18 up by themselves and I had to go up for a history project- I'm sixteen and I don't see how I'm not responsible enough to go up myself. I know that it's got an amazing view though and the sword of William Wallace, or a replica-can't remember. Just a bit annoyed

Astonishing views of the city and surrounding area. Well worth a visit just for that! Really nice walks around the surrounding woodlands, which gives you other viewpoints of the city and surrounding countryside.
