The Wallace Monument in Bridge of Allan, near Stirling, commemorates Sir William Wallace, a Scottish hero. The monument is sited on a hill overlooking the Carse of Stirling, the valley at the foot of the Campsie Hills. 220 feet high, the 246 steps to reach the top do take a bit of time and effort, but once you get there, the views are spectacular and well worth the effort. As you go up the spiral stone steps, there are many floors with exhibits showing the history of Wallace and the Era. A good place to visit of a morning or afternoon, but try to go when it is not too windy.
