Having not visited the monument since my school days where I never made it to the top I was greatly impressed with the climb being split by visiting the 3 rooms on the way up. The displays in each room told the story of Wallace & the area in a way that all ages could enjoy. The best bit was... More

A very interesting time visiting the Wallace monument. The tower has incredible views and is well worth the walk to the top and the stairs. The monument has an interesting range of displays and just the right amount of information. Also saw a great presentation of Wallace by a fully costumed actor who gave lots of additional information. Enjoyed by... More

We didn't pay to enter as arrived too close to closure but got the free bus up the hill and caught the bed of the performer talking about the history of William Wallace which was great. It's a great location with a brilliant view and although we didn't go inside I'm happy with what we saw and I wouldn't have... More

To be fair, I arrived too late to take in the full tour, but enjoyed the tough walk up to the monument, and the fabulous views across Stirling and over to Alloa. A bus service is provided as part of the tour for those less fit or able, and a nice little cafe and shop sit below the monument.

What a day out! Lovely staff, shuttle bus up to the monument, with a very friendly driver! For someone with a fear of tight spaces and heights I climbed a 3/4 floors and on each floor a room packed with interesting stories and facts including William Wallace's very own sword! My child climbed to the top of the monument with... More

We visited on a lovely sunny day last year and the climb to the top was well worth it. There is lots of interesting exhibits on the way up so you don't have to do it all at once. There was an excellent re enactment of after the battle of Stirling bridge , which was amusing yet informative. Afterwards we... More

We visited on the 9th of February with our wee dog. The staff were all lovely in the gift shop/visitor centre as you enter, and also up at the monument. The climb up to the monument from the gift shop was quite a hike...pretty steep...it made me realise how unfit I am! There's a wee mini bus though which runs... More

Was staying at the nearby Stirling Court hotel so went for a walk up the hill to explore the Wallace monument. Pleasant walk up the hill to this impressive structure. Nice cafe and gift shop at the base and the monument itself is an amazing piece of work.

£9.99 are you serious? Way too overpriced and disappointing since William Wallace fought for freedom not overpriced admission to the stairs of his monument. If you want value for money pay £14.50 (or less if you have a voucher) and go and see Stirling Castle where there is a lot to see inside. The National Wallace monument looks better from... More

Hi Chris, thank-you for visiting the Monument, and for your review. Of course we were sorry to hear that you thought the admission charge was not good value. As a local charity we rely completely on the income we receive from admission charges to maintain the Monument and to provide facilities and services for all visitors. We'd be happy to... More

Love the history of this and the view is stunning. Wallace's sword is amazing. The actor outside as one of Wallace's men made the whole visit memorable.
