I spent my first fifteen years growing up in Scotland but during that time I never visited the Wallace Monument near Stirling. That grave omission was rectified when I visited it recently while I was in Scotland. The website for the monument is comprehensive and well worth a visit if you are unable to visit the actual monument.
This is the monument from further afield.
The monument also gives details of famous Scottish identities, writers, engineers etc as part of the detailed exhibition space within the monument
I particularly liked aspects of the architecture of the tower. You can click on the pictures to see more detail.
The surrounding countryside was viewed from the base of the monument.
My granddaughter enjoyed the exhibition too.
