VisitScotland and The National Wallace Monument’s first venture into the world of Virtual Reality
The National Wallace Monument is one of 26 unique attractions featured on the new ScotlandVR app, which launched on 28th February 2017.
ScotlandVR is a virtual reality travel experience that allows the user, wherever they are in the world, to be immersed in Scotland’s remarkable attractions through stunning 360° video & photographs.
Experience Scotland like never before and enjoy fun interactive features, such as ‘Night Mode’, where you can witness the spectacular Northern Lights illuminate the sky above your head. The whole environment can be experienced in Stereoscopic 3D when used with a Google Cardboard virtual reality headset, or in 360° view via phone mode. It is available for all Android and Apple users to download for free on Google Play and Apple Store worldwide.
The landmark locations featured in the app were chosen from set criteria including footfall, product diversity, online searches, showcasing attractions with innovative architecture and design and links to the current 2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.
Through the app you will be able to discover the beautiful architecture of The National Wallace Monument, built by Victorian craftsmen and a distinctive feature on the Stirling skyline, and get a glimpse at the fantastic panoramic views witnessed from the top of the Abbey Craig and The Crown – the top floor of the 220ft tower.
The app allows you to quickly travel to every region of the country though your virtual journey and explore other popular attractions across Scotland including The Kelpies, Edinburgh Castle, Skara Brae and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
