This is a brilliant monument, not as old as you might think, however a must see, very informative regarding William Wallace and the history of him. Beware there are a large number of steps to the top, which you do not have to do all...More

On the face of it, there is little to see at this place. However, I did enjoy the fantastic scenic views from the top of the place. Other than the café at the bottom, there is little to do until you reach the top and...More

Last climbed this in 1980 and it's still a heck of a climb but the view on clear day is really really worth it. Rooms full of history and the children were thoroughly interested.

The top was closed due to extreme winds but the museum was interesting. The views from outside were incredible, very nice hike up to it as well.
