    The history inside the monument is very informative. The 246 step climb is divided by stops at display levels to give you a rest. The view from the top is breath-taking!

    I have been visiting the Wallace monument for years and I love it, the walk up the hill is tiring but worth every minute, there is a mini bus if you prefer it, the views before you climb the monument are breathtaking, once inside, there is the history of William Wallace, and climb to the top for amazing views for miles.

    You have a choice of walking up the track or going in a mini bus, we chose the walk up and down and were not disappointed. Very interesting visit giving the true history of Wallace and the period during which he lived. Amazing view from the top, well worth the climb up the spiral stairway (246 steps).

    Even at the foot of the tower, the view is tremendous but if you can, we recommend taking the 200 odd steps to the top to see right across to the Forth Road bridges. All material within the 3 tower rooms has been pitched at the right level and all ages can gleam a real history about Wallace. Staff all very friendly especially the bus driver! Popped into Legends cafe on the way down. Definitely worth a visit and competitively priced. We'll be back.

    This place gets better and better - wonderful welcome and cafe. Cafe can be used without visiting monument too. The visit is well worth it for history and the views from the top of the monument are second to none.
