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.

No Drones, Please

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.

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.

Elaborate Victorian stone tower commemorating William Wallace, displaying his 2-handed sword.- Google
"Breathtaking, literally Opted to walk the whole way, and it was quite a workout."
"Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was the entry price."

Excellent views from the top if you don't mind a lot of steps. Nice to read the history of the location and William Wallace.

Incredible structure. 246 stairs to the top. Incredible views. Was sad to see that they sell Braveheart in the gift shop. The lack of historical accuracy in that film is startling.

Not much to see, with very little information on Wallace except his involvement with the battle of stirling bridge. Nice view at the top though
