Climb to the summit and enjoy unsurpassed views. Try and go when there is not a strong wind! Enjoy the history as you climb, and only go if you like heights and can negotiate a spiral staircase! But if you make it you will be rewarded. Tourist buses from Stirling go to the Castle and the Monument - the stop... More

It's a steep climb the way I went and uneven in places so not buggy friendly. The view is lovely and you can see a lot from the top. Routes well signposted. The attraction was closed when I went for maintenance so cannot comment on facilities.

Great place but a bit pricey at £10 compared to other attractions in the area, the footpath really needs upgraded as it was just a muddy path with no handrails, but they do have a courtesy bus if you want it

The views from the top of the Wallace Monument are breathtaking. Although the climb to the top is a bit of a challenge, particularly when passing people on the stairs. The climb is broken though by some very interesting displays about famous Scots, William Wallace and the battle of Stirling Bridge. The re-enactment of of two soldiers meeting after the... More

Great day out with kids, even with all the stairs. Various stops as you climb up, you can see the history and get immersed with Scotland's famous battles. Younger kids may get tired, but it's worth it when you get to the top, the views are awesome.
