The Wallace Monument

The thing that really started this interest of mine for William Wallace was when my dear uncle told me about the Wallace Monument, which he described as looking "like something out of The Two Towers." I was intrigued and determined to learn more. This led to these four posts on William Wallace.

The National Wallace Monument (generally just known as the Wallace Monument) is a tower standing on the summit of Abbey Craig, a hilltop near Stirling in Scotland, from which Sir William watched the English army gather on the south side of Stirling Bridge. How cool is that?

Both of these websites are absolutely great and have lots of information about the Monument:

If I ever get to go to Scotland, and I hope that someday I may, I will do every thing in my power to make sure that I get to visit the Wallace Monument.
