A bit of a walk uphill but worth it..over 200 steps up all the way up to the top but amazing view from there. Need a car if you are staying in the city centre.

We visited during storm Doris it's quite exposed up there so getting out the minibus was a challenge lol we didn't go inside as our tour guide thought it was historic Scotland but seemingly not. The views from the platform around the monument are stunning though. Worth a visit. I couldn't have managed the stairs anyway so this is a... More

The 10-15 minute walk to the monument is all uphill from the visitor centre so if your not fairly fit you can take the bus provided to the top.At the monument there was a very informative member of staff dressed in 14th century uniform aka William Wallace, who told some history of himself. The 246 steps to the top were... More

This really is a must do if you are in the area. We opted to walk from the visitor centre all the way to the top. My God! My wife was not a happy lady. It's a great walk, just be mindful that it's all up hill. Great walk, great views and a history lesson to boot. Well worth the... More

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.
