PROUDLY MADE IN SCOTLAND
The National Wallace Monument (generally known as “The Wallace Monument”) is a tower commemorating the Scottish Patriot, Sir William Wallace.
Completed in 1869 to the designs of Architect, John, Thomas Rochead, at a cost of £18,000. The monument is a 62 metre tall sandstone tower built in the Victorian Gothic style. It stands atop Abbey Craig, a volcanic knoll near Stirling. It was at this site that the Scottish army under William Walace was camped as they watched the gathering of the English army of King Edward I, just before the battle of Stirling Bridge, 1297. Having gained victory at theis battle, Wallace was shortly after made “Guardian of Scotland”
The monument was constructed following a fundraising campaign which accompanied a resurgence of Scottish national identity in the 19th century. In addition to public subscription, it was partially funded by contributors from a number of foreign donors including the Italian leader Giuseppe Garibaldi.
