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.

Do any of our fans watch 'Songs of Praise'? Well if you do then you would have seen The Wallace Monument featured on Sunday as the show was filmed in Dunblane Cathedral and featured a lot of local sights and scenery, The Monument included.

If you want to watch the programme it is available for the next 5 days on the BBC iPlayer, simply click the link below.

It was windy up there, but omg the views!!!!!!! Prepare yourself for a wee bit of an uphill hike to get to the top, but it's well worth it, even at the bottom of the actual monument itself. Then navigate the narrow stairs up to the very tip top of the monument and prepare yourself for even more breath taking views from a bird's eye height. Absolutely amazing views. Great history for Wallace fans, even those of Braveheart, and Robert the Bruce or just Scottish History lovers in general! Not only does the monument and the people it's erected for carry great historical value, but so too do the other buildings you can see from the top. Amazing. Must visit for anyone visiting Scotland!

I've been there three times, awesome panoramic views!! but, maybe too many stairs but when you reach the top of the tower.... it's worth it! Avoid if it's a misty day, you can see (I can talk in my own experience) a really nice white views of nothing :P

A stunning landmark with a long and fascinating history. Having been brought up nearby, I've been lucky enough to have heard the fantastic stories of Scotland's history. The internal rooms of the monument let you discover more about the area's history and more about the building itself. I love going up there. The view at the top is glorious, the only down-side is the price is too much to visit regularly. If you are scared of confined spaces or heights, it's probably not the best attraction for you of our beautiful city. But if you have a love for history, feel like a bit of a challenge (it's a lot of stairs) and appreciate beautiful and unusual buildings and views... It's a must-see.

OK. It's William Wallace. You know his story. He is a legend. Scot. Brave. Smart. And then there are the people who think, that 9 GPB for three rooms "full" of information and a lovely view from the top would be fair. Well: i don't think so! He/She who loves the history of the Scots and their heroes will be disappointed. Because of the uncaring presentation of this legend(s) for that amount of money. The sword and the view are the only highlights.
