National Wallace Monument
The National Wallace Monument on Abbey Craig outside Stirling commemorates the life of Sir William Wallace, a 13th-century Scottish warrior who battled the forces of King Edward I of England in the cause of Scottish independence.
The monument, completed in 1869, is a 220-ft Victorian Gothic tower designed by John Thomas Rochead. Visitors climb 246 interior steps to view Stirling, the site of the Battle of Stirling Bridge, and Stirling Castle—not to mention the River Forth and the surrounding countryside—from the tower’s crown. Along the way, they can pause to explore galleries depicting Wallace’s impact on Scottish history, to gaze at his sword, and to wander the Hall of Heroes with its busts of famous Scotsmen.
Aside from the monument’s remarkable open crown, its most striking element is a 15-ft bronze statue of Wallace placed on a corbel about 30 ft above ground level. The caretaker’s house (attached to the monument) is now a tearoom. There is also a small on-premises gift shop. A separate reception center is located at the base of Abbey Craig, where visitors can purchase tickets and catch the shuttle leading up to the monument.

Berwick Castle and Ramparts
This was one of the most important castles during the Border wars in the 16th century. The ramparts remain almost completely intact and have 16th century gateway walls. In the 19th century much of the castle was destroyed to make way for a railway but visitors can visit the ruins and walk around the pathways.
It is open daily throughout the year. Admission if free.
Birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, built beside Linlithgow Loch. An ancient 16th century fountain has now been restored and is thought to be the oldest fountain in Great Britain.
Wander around this palace and absorb the history, it can also be used for weddings and in the summer Scottish country dance enthusiasts dance in the courtyard on some evenings.
Easy to reach by train or public transport and several carparks near by, although it does get busy in the summer months. Part of Historic Scotland, admission tickets can now be bought online.
Open all year, except 25th, 26th December and 1st, 2nd January.
The grounds open 9.30am and close 6.30pm in summer (1 April to 30 September) and 4.30pm in winter.
Arbroath Abbey was founded in 1178 by an order of Tiron monks. William the Lion is buried in the presbytery and the declaration of Arbroath, which supported Scotlands independence of England, was signed here.
