Landscape view of Wallace Monument.

This evening, I am posting information on the Wallace Monument in Stirling, central Scotland.

The monument was erected in 1869 to commemorate Sir William Wallace (1272-1305), a minor Scottish aristocrat, who rose to become a leader of the Scottish resistance against English aggression and won an important battle (against the English) at nearby Stirling Bridge in 1297.
