THE National Wallace Monument in Stirling is offering free admission in celebration of St Andrew’s Day on Friday, November 30.

Visitors are invited to come along and learn more about Scotland’s national hero, William Wallace, at the popular attraction. 

Home to the legendary Wallace Sword, the monument provides an insight into Wallace’s life - as well as offering one of the finest views across central Scotland.

In addition to the free entry, there will also be regular performances from a costumed actor throughout the day, to help bring history to life.

Each year, Stirling District Tourism, the charity which manages The National Wallace Monument, opens the doors to the iconic landmark for free to mark St Andrew’s Day, and thousands of people have taken up this opportunity.

Ken Thomson, marketing manager for the attraction, said: “Offering our visitors the chance to explore The National Wallace Monument for free on the day when we remember Scotland’s patron saint gives tourists and locals alike the opportunity to discover more about William Wallace. 

"We hope that those who have always wanted to experience the attraction, as well as those who have visited countless times, will take advantage of this special offer.”

The free admission applies to everyone who attends on Friday, November 30.

The offer will also apply to children aged 15 and under on Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2.
