Very large

A lovely short walk, then the size of the statue was so impressive. Very good views from here to. You can extend the walk down to the riverside.

An impressive statue that is well hidden by trees until you are almost upon it. A short pleasant walk uphill gets you to it. Worth the effort.

Small carpark and 10 mins walk along woodland path to the statue rewards you with fabulous views of the Tweed Valley and nearby hills. Info boards give background history of William Wallace.

this is quite a breathtaking statue of a great Scottish Hero. It is not easy to find as nature has taken over to try and hide it. However if you travel across Mertoun Bridge towards Kelso and take the first turn on the left follow the road for a good mli and you will come to the signpost.there is a... More

A very easy place to find due to good signage and plenty of space to park. A lovely 15 minute walk along the easy to follow path and all of a sudden it's there and our initial thoughts were.. wow this is different! It's a very different statue to that which you would normally expect to find and seemed a... More

If you are in this area maybe visiting the abbey or at sorts view I would recommend stopping off here. The walk isn't too long (15 mins) at a leisurely pace and the statues are impressive but the views and the wildlife stole it for me...stunning.

There is a decent car park and after a short and pleasant walk you reach the huge and impressive William Wallace statue over looking the valley. The walk is an easy one to suit all abilities and push chairs and is well worth doing.

Any braveheart fan would want to see this statue, we kind of stumbled across it after seeing the signs in the road. Small area to park and around a 15 minute walk to get to. A easy walk thou. To be fair it's beautiful but the area around could do with a good tidy up, overgrown trees and bushes don't... More

Not too big a walk - very overweight and don't do hills so this was just about manageable and very pleasant with cows in the field. The statue itself made me laugh a bit, crazy face and he looked more Greek than Scots.

This statue which we found quite by mistake while travelling the borders is an absolute hidden gem. The statue built by an "eccentric" land owner in the 1800s is huge and poised above the Tweed valley. It is very impressive and just a short walk through wonderful scenery to get there. My only complaint is that there is really few... More
