Wonderful, wonderful experience today. Actors were really informative yet funny. The staff are all amazingly friendly and approachable. Well laid out. The views at the top of the tower are just simply breathtaking, can see whole of Stirling. WELL DONE Wallace staff you have done yourselves and Stirling proud.
Staff were friendly and helpful. The hill climb to the monument has many beautiful wooden statues which break up the journey with interesting information. There is also a shuttle bus available. The monument itself is brilliant. Lots of historical, and interactive activities to break up your climb to the top. The ascent is worth it, the views from the top are incredible. Well worth a visit.
