Wallace Monument

Today we went to the Wallace monument.  It celebrates William Wallace as  a national hero. He was not a hero when he was alive as most thought he was a rebel at best. In the 1800s Scottish people began to feel nationalistic so this monument was built.

We climbed the 264 steps and saw the sword and many others things that had to do with the battle of Falkirk and William Wallaces other battles.

It's was very high I thought it was amazing if look very well shaped by the architect. It was very fogy from the top of the monument but well worth it.
