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

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.
