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.

It appears we passed 1000 LIKES over the weekend. Thanks everyone!

We will do a special competition as 1000 likes is a bit of a landmark...any suggestions what kind of competition we should do?

If you are looking for something to do outdoors this weekend then visit us at The National Wallace Monument and join "A Walk with Wallace".

Throughout the day we are running a series of short guided walks on the Abbey Craig with costumed actors telling the story of Wallace's famous encounter with the army of King Edward I at The Battle of Stirling Bridge

On Sunday we were proud hosts to one of the 6 rounds of this years Scottish Cycling Mini Downhill series.

Despite the poor weather around 40 children took part in the day's racing and a great day was had by all.

If anyone has any pictures of the event they want to share then post them up and tag us in them, thanks!

Good morning everyone. Head over to The Scottish Sun's website and have a look at their coverage of Scotland Rugby star Graeme Morrison posing for some pictures at The National Wallace Monument with the RBS 6 Nations trophy.

i always think the monument looks a lot bigger from the bottom of the hill than when your at the top. worth taking the walk up, rather than shuttle bus, option if you have the time, but stirling isn't a particularly pretty site and the routes round the monument and craigs don't add anything as the map stones show 'landmarks' that you can't see for overgrown trees!

The Wallace Monument is a beautiful sight, and you are able to see it from almost anywhere in Stirling. However, when you arrive at the monument, you first enter the gift shop, which is located at the bottom of the hill. The monument is a very steep climb to reach by foot from the shop. Normally they have a shuttle running every 15 minutes to the top of the monument, but on this particular day the van was "broken down". And instead of any one of the 3 shop workers finding alternate means to transport customers up the mountain, they simply stated, "You'll have to walk up the path.". When asked if they would offer discounted tickets because they are offering less of a service they simply said, "No." For such a major tourist attraction, its a shame they rely so heaving on a single van, and have no alternate plans when something happens to that one van.

My family and I had a fantastic visit to The Wallace Monument. It was lovely to see the incredible and very long Wallace Sword and all that it represents. Really enjoyed the hall of Heroes and the views from the top - breathtaking. The Wallace Monument was as good as the pictures on the leaflet, and like the Blackpool Tower we saw it from many miles away before we even arrived at the Abbey Craig in Stirling. We bought sandwiches from the spacious Legend Cafe which sits below the Monument and enjoyed a picnic on the grounds. So impressed we will all go back in the spring.

Breathtaking, literally Opted to walk the whole way, and it was quite a workout. Made me appreciate all the more what happened in the area to shape history, and the people involved. Must see!

My daughter and I had a lovely visit at the Monument. It was an honor to see the Wallace Sword and all it represents. The Monument was so impressive, and we saw it many miles away before we even arrived perched high above over Stirling. The rooms were full of history and the views from the top were spectacular. We had a delightful lunch by the window while we looked at the castle, and cleaned out the gift shop. It was a perfect day and and a dream of mine to see the monument. I came all the way from America!! Freedom!!!! Alba Gu Bragh!!

The monument is lovely, a bit expensive for three rooms and a roof but it was good to see.
