In Scotland we have a castle in every town but there is only one Wallace monument. Well with visit and on a clear day the views are nothing short of stunning.

very nice and impressive building, towering the valley with meandering river where the battle took place that was so instrumental in the first and second scottish wars for independence. Everybody who saw the movie braveheart should go here.

246 steps? I keep reading "it is worth the climb". I am confused exactly what you are climbing? I see some posts say you can take a shuttle. Do you have to climb to see the displays of the monument or the sword? I am a little out of shape and claustrophobic. Will this climb be difficult?
