NATIONAL WALLACE MONUMENT & STIRLING CASTLE. 

(8 HOURS)

We journey to Stirling and visit the National Wallace Monument http://www.nationalwallacemonument.com/index.php which stands on Abbey Craig and where Wallace marshalled his troops before the battle of Stirling Bridge. Here we can take time to delve into his life story, see his mighty broadsword and witness his trial. The Monument regularly hosts live performances and special events throughout the year.

After taking lunch we then head across the city to the mighty Stirling Castle. http://www.stirlingcastle.gov.uk/ During your visit to Stirling Castle, step back into the 16th. century and immerse yourself in the glorious history of Scotland’s renaissance Kings and Queens. Become part of mediaeval life through the living history demonstrations, tours and exhibitions. Stirling Castle continues to live and breathe and offers a fantastic family adventure through the annals of time.

As a symbol of Scotland’s nationhood, William Wallace https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4Ym9zokSZo was a key figure in the Wars of Independence during the 13th and 14th centuries. In September 1297, Wallace began the battle to win Scotland’s independence and joined forces with Sir Andrew Murray. Together they routed the English army of King Edward I at the Battle of Stirling Bridge. This victory was followed up by an invasion into Northern England.

Murray died of his wounds and Wallace was recognised in 1298, by the Community of the Realm, as the Sole Guardian of the Kingdom of Scotland. Although a confident and successful political leader, Wallace resigned the Guardianship after his defeat at the Battle of Falkirk. After the collapse of the Scottish Resistance in 1304, Wallace fought on until he was betrayed and captured in 1305. William Wallace was taken and tried in London where he was hung, drawn and quartered as a traitor.

THE BRAVEHEART LEGACY

The movie “Braveheart” premiered in Stirling in September 1995. Starring Mel Gibson, it recognizes the enduring story of William Wallace and the fight for freedom in Scotland.
