Wallace Monument

The National Wallace Monument is a tower standing near Stirling (Scotland) and commemorates Sir William Wallace. The tower was constructed in the 19th century and was the design of architect John Thomas Rochead. The monument is a 67-metre sandstone tower in Victorian Gothic style.  It is situated on the Abbey Craig, from which Wallace was said to have watched the gathering of the army of king Edward I.

It is possible to climb the 246 step spiral staircase to the viewing gallery inside the monument’s crown and open up the views of the Ochil Hills and the Forth Valley. The Hall of heroes includes a series of busts of famous Scots.
