A steep walk up from the car park and then another steep climb up the narrow, winding staircase. Very difficult with people coming down at the same time. Great panoramic view from the top. Entry fee definitely overpriced.

I was concerned about getting to the monument but there is a bus that takes you up the hill to the monument and museum. The museum was fascinating.

Hello Patsy and thank you so much for your lovely review, we are delighted you enjoyed your visit.
we arrived after it closed but was still worth walking up to see even though we didn't go inside. the walk isn't tom difficult but you are walking uphill. you can also get cool views of him from stirling bridge.
Hello and thank you for your review, please come again when we are open, you can see much farther from the top of the monument.
We walked to the Wallace monument from the reception which I would recommend doing on a nice day rather than taking the bus. It was really nice and interesting and if definitely do it again. The view at the top is amazing!
