We chose to park car at the playpark in alloa road, and let the children play there for a while before taking a walk up a few flights of steep steps up through the woods where we came out at the visitor centre with toilets and cafe we bought tickets: Around £10 for adult ticket, £5 for children under 5 go free, cafe is expensive £2 for bottle of juice. Toilets clean. The minibus that takes you up to the bottom of Wallace monument was off this weekend so we began walking the steep track up which was hard work but we got there! Area around the monument is nice, with good views and picnic tables. The monument is steep and wynding but there are levels where you can stop, rest and take in some information and history, Sir William Wallace's actual sword is a very interesting sight. Myself my 3 year old and my 6 year old climbed to the top it wasn't too much effort for then at all and was like a big adventure. It is very windy at the top but the sights are amazing, especially on a clear day, there really is nothing not to like about here, its a great place to visit for anyone :)

A lovely walk up to the monument or minibus if you prefer. Narrow step up to the various halls filled with interesting artefacts and information culminating in breath taking views across the forth valley at the top.

Once you have walked 10 minutes up hill from the ticket department (or cheated by getting the mini bus ;-)) There are over 240 stairs to climb before you reach the top of this monument, but every step will take you are one step further to a magnificent view. You could not wish for a better panoramic view. Each way you look whether it be east, west, north or south, there are beautiful views. Of cause, if it is foggy then you will not see quite as much,so pick you visit wisely. You don't even need to particularly fit as there are three rooms with seating for us very unfit to catch our breath every so often. If you are not a fan of spiral staircases then this is monument is not for you.

Stunning views to be had from the top of the monument, particularly on a clear day - though it is quite a hefty climb to the top

Another great example of the rich history in Scotland. But be aware of the climb. It's a tough one. They do have rooms set up to tell the story along the way to catch your breath though. And the view at the top makes it worth it
