Day tripping (11) – Wallace Monument and view from Stirling Castle

Posted by Jackie on July 23, 2009


This fantastic view east from Stirling Castle is looking towards the Wallace Monument (which is the column just above the centre of the picture). William Wallace was a Scottish landowner and patriot who led a resistance during the wars of Scottish independence. These days he’s better known as he was portrayed by Mel Gibson in the film “Braveheart” (a film not noted for its historical accuracies, but still very popular and winner of 5 Oscars).

I’m going to be without internet access for a few days, so will respond to comments and visit blogs next week when I’m back online.

    What a fantastic view! I went to Sterling Castle and W Wallace Monument the year after Braveheart came out. Loved it totally as I used to love Mel Gibson before his blunder with his personal life. Thanks for posting this. Ciao. A.
