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 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.

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!

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.

Myself & my three sons visited. In 2013 rideing up on our bikes from south Wales was tuff but well worth it . Talking about doing it again B-)

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!
