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.

Would recommend paying the money and going up. The actual monument is much bigger than one might actually think with exhibitions on 3 floors and then a top floor with great views if Stirling

Amazing views from the top. Entry is a little pricey but if you're not opposed to heights or around 230 steps, the exercise and scenery is stunning. There are also 2 or 3 floors of displays on the way up if you need to take a breather or just want a bit of history.

A must see visitor/tourist attraction when in the Stirling area. Fantastic views of the surrounding area even from the base of the monument. Make the effort to take a trip to the top to enjoy the spectacular panoramic view.

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
